Report of the ET2020 Working Group on Adult Learning published

The role of the Education and Training Working Group on Adult Learning 2016-2018 of the European Commission, on which EAEA also had a seat, was to identify policies that promote and support workplace learning of adults. The final report is now available.

The report focuses especially in adults struggling with reading, writing, making simple calculations and using digital tools; and on adults with medium skills in need of up-skilling.

The report presents the outcomes of the work carried out in the ET2020 Working Group on Adult Learning. It identifies key messages for policy development along with case studies to inspire new thinking.

EAEA has been the member of the Working Group.

Survey reveals that European ALE organisations struggle with access to EU funding opportunities

In a recent survey conducted across adult learning and education (ALE) organisations in Europe in the framework of the Path2EU4AE project, a concerning revelation has emerged: many organisations lack crucial information about various European Union funding programmes available to them. While the Erasmus+ programme is widely known and used in the sector, other funding programmes such as CERV (Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values) and Creative Europe are still largely unknown to many organisations.
