What's in this episode?

Welcome to the next episode of our #voctechpodcast series!

This week’s episode throws back to our LIVE recording at Dare to Learn 2019 in Helsinki, Finland, recorded during the same week as HEL we can!, an event on Boosting Skills & Continuous Learning in Europe. With a panel of adult education and corporate training providers, teachers, and eco-system supporters we asked questions such as 'Whose responsibility is upskilling workers?', and 'Are learning economics fit for purpose in corporate learning?'. Listen in for more!
