Meeting Basic Learning Needs in the Informal Sector: Integrating Education and Training for Decent Work, Empowerment and Citizenship

The anthology brings basic facts and features about basic learning needs and skills of people working and living in the informal economy. In addition, it presents case studies from different countries which examine educational and training strategies for meeting these learning needs. The book looks at the interlinkages between education for all - EFA and work and takes the stance that promoting the right to basic education is crucial for overcoming oppression and indecent working conditions. Basic education in its current state is not imparting the necessary skills for entry to the labour market. In view of this gap, the case studies pose the crucial question of what essential skills and which basic learning needs have to be addressed for productive and decent work.
