The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) is inviting applications for CONFINTEA Fellowship Programme 2016, offering six fellowships in the month of October, to government officials and representatives of civil society organizations working in key positions within the field of adult learning and education (ALE) in UNESCO Member States.

  • Be involved in policy formulation or in planning and implementing programmes at national level; in addition, involvement in national activities related to the preparations for, implementation of, or follow-up to CONFINTEA VI would be an asset
  • Have fluent spoken and written English and, ideally, a working knowledge of another United Nations or UNESCO language.
