New paper explores gender and adult learning

EAEA has published a new background paper on gender in the context of adult learning and education. The paper aims to raise awareness about the role of gender in ALE and promotes gender-sensitive approaches to learning.

This paper explores the problems that gender-sensitive adult education could attempt to solve, good practices and examples to help make current structures more gender-sensitive and the wider benefits of gender sensitivity in adult learning and education (ALE).

The paper argues that gender sensitivity in ALE is about more than trying to improve targeted outreach programmes for men and women who seem to be slipping through the gaps. By providing gender sensitive education opportunities, people are not only more likely to engage but also more likely to get the most out of their experiences.
