The IQS at the Congress on Non-Formal Education

A Congress on Non-Formal Education (KEP 2019) will be held on September 18-19 at the University of Warsaw Biological and Chemical Research Centre, organised by the Polish Chamber of Training Companies and the University of Warsaw. The Educational Research Institute is one of the partners of the event.

KEP 2019 continues the series of such Congresses, whose last three editions enjoyed great interest among representatives of the education and training sector. This year’s event is addressed to representatives of all entities involved in supporting the idea of lifelong learning: representatives of training firms, consulting companies and higher education institutions, as well as people providing coaching and mentoring services. As the second day of the Congress is dedicated to the development of managerial competences, the organisers are also inviting entrepreneurs.

Experts will tackle the subject of education

Congress organisers expect the participation of over 300 owners and managers of the largest training and consulting firms, as well as representatives of public institutions and decision-making centres shaping the country’s educational policies. Five thematic sessions will be held during the event:

  • Trends and innovations
  • Development services
  • Innovations
  • Solutions and products
  • Development of managerial competencies
  • The Manager’s Academy
  • Management Schools

Participants will be able to listen to a number of presentations, take part in numerous debates with experts and view the exhibition stands. One exhibit will be on the digital tools of the Integrated Qualifications System (IQS). Event participants will also be able to take part in workshops devoted to the IQS and learn about the “My Portfolio” tool, as well as listen to presentations by IBE speakers and IQS experts, on mapping qualifications and learning outcomes, among other topics.
