Review your organisation’s availability with the new AEMA tool

Not everyone has equal access to education. The AEMA project consortium wishes to change it and has now launched a new tool to this end: the accessibility assessment matrix, enabling adult education providers to evaluate their level of accessibility.

The Accessibility Assessment for Adult Education Providers is a key outcome of the Adult Education Made Accessible – AEMA project, resulting from a year of collaborative work. The official launch comes after a testing phase in AEMA partner countries, whose results confirmed the usefulness of the tool. It was made available on May 19, also as a celebration of the Global Accessibility Day.

The matrix is organised around six areas of evaluations, rating organisations on a scale of five levels. It can be used in a number of ways: as a quick guide describing key areas of accessibility, as a tool to review and improve existing practices and as a source of information to plan larger policies.

 

AEMA Network makes adult education accessible

The revamped AEMA website can be used by education providers to create professional profiles and show competences in the field of adult education accessibility, as well as to contact other stakeholders.

The AEMA project, in which EAEA is actively engaged as a partner, has been running since 2014 and is due to finish at the end of the year. One of its main objectives is contributing to an increased participation rate of people with disabilities in adult education. To find out more about the project and its recent developments, please consult the freshly-published issue of the AEMA newsletter.
