    BEtter COMmunicate and Identify training Needs of basic skills for workers

    The European Learning Partnership "BECOMIN" which was developped between october 2012 and July 2014 focused on the issue of basic skills training for lower-qualified target groups such workers and "workers-to-be" / job seekers in process of job reintegration. The critical entry was the specificity related to the stigmatization of a basic skills apprenticeship for any adult learners. The Partnership considered that a special work, upstream the training face-to-face, should be developed, notably on 3 key-pillars: - the communication of the training towards workers and employers / companies, - the identification of basic skills needs of workers, and the evaluation of the workers' levels, relaying on trainers' experiences, - the importance of an adapted pedagogy ("on-the-job pedagogy") so as to provide useful competences for the everyday work and life. Thus, the Partnership aimed at exchanging their best practices and experiences related to these subjects in order to be better prepared for the creation of quality training actions which convey great success and benefits for workers, enterprises and pedagogical staff. These actors represented by the BECOMIN Partnership gathered together to tackle this issue: training centres - which are at the very core of the identification of workers' needs and levels, employers's representants - which represent the Labour needs for basic skills and the match between skills and jobs, consultancy and research bodies in VET - which have a strategical eye on the short, mid and long term common interests at stake. These 3 actors based their interrogations on ground observation: workers with lower qualification level don't easily enroll in basic skills training. The fact that 3 types of actors shared this observation gave the Partnership multi-angle views of the issue at stake.
