European Skills Agenda is big step forward for European adult learning and education

The recently launched revised European Skills Agenda takes adult learning and education in Europe one step forward. While the Upskilling Pathways have been very valuable for promoting basic skills and validation of non-formal and informal learning, the Skills Agenda strengthens non-formal adult education and learning by saying that it will “prioritise non-formal, life-wide learning, intergenerational, intercultural and community learning” and by highlighting skills for life as a key pillar of adult learning and education.
