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.
2022 has, so far, been a very eventful year for adult learning and education at the European and international levels. Together with civil society partners, EAEA has been bringing the voice of adult learners into the discussions and negotiations on several key adult learning policies.
European adult learning and education organisations are ringing the alarm bell: the energy crisis and inflation in Europe are spreading far and wide and are starting to show their negative impact on the adult learning and education (ALE) sector. EAEA calls for urgent action to mitigate the impact of the energy crisis and inflation on ALE provision and to ensure access to learning opportunities for all adults.
