On 16 October 2019 the Education Policy Division will be organising the conference “Achieving Equal Opportunities for All Migrants Through Learning and Assessment: Language and knowledge of society requirements for migrants in Council of Europe member states” in partnership with the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE) in Strasbourg.
The purpose of the conference is to present the results of the Council of Europe and ALTE Survey on Language and Knowledge of Society Policies for Migrants: requirements and learning opportunities which was conducted in 2018 by the Council of Europe in co-operation with ALTE to map the language and knowledge of society requirements as well as the learning opportunities provided for migrants in Council of Europe member states.
The conference will provide insight into the trends in the migration policies in Council of Europe member states, discuss the implications of increasing use of language and knowledge of society requirements and suggest concrete measures to be taken.
International participants, from nearly all continents, include government officials, policy makers, representatives from the NGOs, academics and other Council of Europe bodies.
