RECLA (Red de Educación Continua de Latinoamérica y Europa, Continuing Education Network for Latin America and Europe) is a non-profit organization formally registered in 1997.
RECLA facilitates networking and internationalization by sharing experiences and best practices and by providing access to new knowledge. All this is possible with the collaboration of people and institutions, which ensures strong long-term bonds.
We understand and define continuing education as follows:
It is an education method that complements the formal system, aimed at anyone who, at any point in their life, decides to seek out flexible and current options for training, updates, specialization, or improvement in different knowledge areas that help strengthen their skills and general development as a person, or in response to the competitive demands of the labor market.
