Vocvo is the Flemish Support Centre for Adult Education. We support Flemish Centres for Basic Education and Centres for Adult Education in Flanders and Brussels. We are responsible for the implementation of the 5 year Strategic Literacy Plan of the Flemish Government. Vocvo also edits a newspaper and books for low-literate adults in clear language and supports companies and organisations in tackling literacy problems. Finally, a very important part of our work is the coordination of prison education in Flanders and Brussels.
We regret to announce that the Vocvo international training week on prison education 'Education behind Belgian bars' was cancelled. The week was scheduled from 6th to 10th May 2019. Unfortunately, there were not enough registrations to make this training week a succesful international exchange event.
Of course international exchange about prison education remains important for Vocvo. Therefore we will introduce other formats to host these meetings in the future, more tailored to the needs and possibilities of the visitors. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about this!
