Stakeholder feedback

Work-Based Learning is key for the lifelong learners of the future, and higher education institutions will finally value informal learning the same way they value formal learning. And this can result in new educational programmes, innovation and the professional development of individuals.

University for Continuing Education Krems (AT)
We participated in a series of sessions organized by the UniLab project with the team of our country. Group work and exchange of ideas at the end of these sessions were very useful for us. We received information about the role of career development centers in universities. We also shared new ideas on how development can be implemented in this area.
