Recent developments in Poland
In Poland, the Ministry of National Education is currently addressing a “National Skills Strategy for Poland”. In February 2019, our member organisation took part in the OECD Strategy Assessment Workshop, this was a workshop designed for stakeholders of the Integrated Skills Strategy. At the workshop, the discussion centered around tackling education policy, and the need to raise participation in adult education of all forms, the improvement of the Education and Training System, which hoped to reduce imbalances, developing systems for skills governance, and finally strengthening skills for the labour market skills. In that regard, in May 2019, a further workshop analysed new proposals and refined recommendations related to the skill development priority areas. There were no major changes,or revelations, but the workshop recognised the important issue of raising participation in adult learning.
