EURASHE Seminar on Lifelong Learning and Intermediate Level in Higher Education
EURASHE organised a Seminar on Lifelong Learning (LLL) titled ‘Lifelong Learning and Intermediate Level in Higher Education‘ in Stuttgart (Germany) on 12 March 2007.
The stimulus for Lifelong Learning (LLL) including the Intermediate Level in Higher Education (short-cycle higher education, SCHE) comes from the world of employment: they see a need for qualified staff in a ‘middle position’ which they would like to see ‘filled’. There is a need for young people with specific skills, for specific jobs/profiles in both for-profit and no-profit employment. They are also employed people who want to upgrade their skills, so as to be able to meet the demands better for the (continually developing) jobs they currently hold.
In this seminar we are in particular focussing on the German speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
