About

NEF Warsaw 2022
The New Education Forum Warsaw will focus on the crisis situation related to the war in Ukraine. The great amount of ukrainian refugees coming to Poland, means huge challenges for the education system and the labour market. During the regional New Education Forum in May 2022 we will focus our attention in these challenges and three main related topics:
1
Soft skills and employers' expectations vs. education possibilities,
2
School in the crisis circumstances, and
3
Attractive learning: digital and gamification tools in practice.

The conference will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation into Polish.

Labour market: transferrable skills, employers' expectations and the possibilities of the school.
The changing labour market and transferrable skills that the school should develop. The discrepancy between the expectations of employers and the competences taken from the school: responsibility vs. the performance of instructions, creativity vs. taking tests, cooperation in a group vs. accounting for the individual achievements of the student. Transferrable or transversal competences are highly desired by employers, but the recruitment advertisements for VET graduates are dominated by the requirements relating to technical skills and having experience that a young person does not have. That is why it is so important to engage business in educational activities: admitting pupils and students to internships, contact with job experts and the possibility of practical verification of the acquired knowledge.
