The 2013 CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme

The 2012 Fellows ©UIL.

The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning is currently accepting applications for the 2013 cohort of four CONFINTEA Fellowships for key personnel from Member States to improve adult education at country level by supporting the implementation of the CONFINTEA VI Follow-up. They will be invited in October 2013 for a fully funded research-cum-capacity-building visit of four weeks. Participants should be government officials or senior specialists in adult education. Interested candidates are asked to submit a written application to UIL by 31 May 2013.

The overall aim of the CONFINTEA VI Fellowship Programme is to reinforce Member State capacity in implementing the Belém Framework for Action at country level. The Belém Framework for Action, adopted by 144 countries at the Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI), entails recommendations to improve policy, governance, financing, participation and quality in adult literacy and education in a perspective of lifelong learning.

One of the outcomes anticipated is that senior experts from Member States will develop specifically their capacity in policy analysis and formulation in support of adult literacy and education.
