Lifelong learning, however, is also a must for low-skilled workers, in order to be able to work and survive in the labour market of the future. But it is difficult to organise in practice, and often they are not open to the idea. With the support of the European Social Fund (ESF) Vlerick Business School, together with the not-for-profit association “Wonen en Werken Opleiding”, developed a tool called “Stevig in de steigers”.
