A wonderful first day for the ACJ, rich in African experiences, new ideas, challenging suggestions and amazing visuals - all about skills! But skills and qualifications need robust and contextualised Lifelong Learning approaches, supported top-down and bottom-up, with resources, and validation of all learning acquired through all modalities and in all contexts. And the ACQF can help with this validation. Towards an African Lifelong learning approach?

A guided tour to the ACQF website and an animated video on ACQF Peer Learning allowed participants to navigate through the key sections, content and tools of the website, emphasizing the importance of Resources, Capacity Development and News.
