A new and innovative event to celebrate the project's successes, exchange ideas, seize opportunities and create new synergies.

PONToon, an Interreg France (Channel) England project has already enabled more than 1460 women from the south of England and the north of France to acquire skills and/or find employment. A digital toolkit has been created and a lot of knowledge has been shared to help them.
You will be able to discover these resources and the tools used during the virtual event on 21 January 2021. This event will bring together partners, stakeholders, associates, actors and beneficiaries of continuing education and training, in order to allow you to discover the actions carried out within the framework of the PONToon project. You will also be able to meet local actors in the fields of training, employment and entrepreneurship.
