Dear colleagues from E2C Europe
We are pleased to inform you that next 16 December will take place the 2nd National Meeting of the Portuguese Network of Second Chance Schools and Initiatives, E2O Portugal, in Valongo, a municipality close to Porto.
The meeting will take place at Forum Cultural de Ermesinde, in Valongo,celebrating the opening of the new Second Chance School in Valongo, and will take place throughout the day (attached poster and program). It will bring together the institutions (schools, CPCJ, municipalities, NGOs and others) and professionals (teachers, social educators, social workers, psychologists, artists and others) active in the field of second chance education and in combating social exclusion of young people in Portugal. We are very happy that the President of E2C Europe, Michel Haudry, will be with us for this meeting along with our Secretary of State of Education, Dr. João Costa, our President of the National Council of Education, Drª Emília Brederode dos Santos, reference researchers in this field from Porto and Lisbon universities, the Director of the Regional Program for the Qualification of Adults from Azores government, the north regional director of Employment, among others
The Meeting takes place at a very important moment of consolidation of this field of intervention, legitimized with the publication of the new law, Despacho No. 6954 of 6 August 2019, that creates the Program 20 "Second Chance", and is a decisive contribution to the development of this new policy in Portugal, guaranteeing the effective right to education of young early leavers.
The meeting also intends to welcome more members to the E2O Portugal National Network, and together we will decide on the structure and bodies of the network and will elect its coordination.
Please promote our event on E2C webpage and social media.
