(PRESS RELEASE) – In the context of the 40th Meeting of National Coordinators of UNESCO’s Latin American Laboratory for Assessment of the Quality of Education (LLECE), which is scheduled for September 24-26, 2018, a seminar will be held in Lima to address how a comprehensive education –in regard to academic, social and ethical matters- encourages and improves the development of children and young people.

The meeting is being organized by UNESCO’s Regional Bureau for Education, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Peru’s Ministry of Education.

The objective of the International Seminar on the Measurement and Development of Socio-emotional Skills in Lima, Peru will be to move towards a shared conceptual definition of socio-emotional skills for education assessment systems in Latin America.

The meeting will explore how students –and all people- adapt and respond to the challenges of a constantly changing world and increasingly diverse societies. This reality requires skills that go well beyond basic literacy and math skills, as stated in the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.

The seminar is being organized jointly by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Ministry of Education of Peru, and the Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (OREALC/UNESCO Santiago). The event will take place in the context of the 40th Meeting of National Coordinators of the Latin American Laboratory for Assessment of the Quality of Education (LLECE) run by OREALC/UNESCO Santiago, which will take place on September 24-26.
