Increasing regional capacity in adult education – let us know what you think!

The RegALE consortium has launched a survey to investigate the challenges and opportunities of the adult education sector at regional and local levels. The survey also intends to map the gaps and needs of education organisations and stakeholders.

More impact and sustainability for adult learning and education organisations

The RegALE project aims to increase the impact and sustainability of regional/local adult learning and education (ALE) organisations by setting up or reinforcing networks among them and with regional/local authorities.

The main outcome of the project is an increased capacity of its partners (and of their networks, stakeholders, partners, and members) to respond to their challenges. RegALE will also contribute to building cooperation structures and promoting an adult education culture in communities, cities, and regions.

Phase one: finding out the challenges and opportunities

The project was officially kicked off in March. In the first phase of the project, partners will work on a background report on the challenges and opportunities of adult education and learning in cities and regions. In addition, the partners will create a repository of good practices and initiatives that promote a learning culture at local and/regional levels.

The consortium is highly motivated and has great expectations for this project. The project is coordinated by the EAEA in cooperation with the European Association of Regional & Local Authorities for lifelong learning (EARLALL). Project partners include the Varaždin County, Vestland County Council, Hellenic Adult Education Association (HAEA), AONTAS, Estonian Non-formal Adult Education Association, the Learning and Work Institute, VHS Baden-Württemberg, Adult Education Borås, and the University of Siena.

Tell us your opinion through the RegALE survey

If you want to be part of a pool of local and regional policymakers and ALE stakeholders, share your opinions with us by filling the RegALE survey. In return, respondents will get valuable input from other EU respondents, policymakers and stakeholders and access to our survey results.

Based on the survey results, the ReGALE consortium will draft a comprehensive description of relevant policies and aspects of the adult education and learning systems, assess the strengths and weaknesses of the systems, and suggest potential avenues for further reform.

ACCESS THE RegALE SURVEY

The survey will take approximately between 15 and 30 minutes to complete and is accessible until the 19th of May. Replies, documents and links can be submitted in any language. The responses will be treated anonymously and confidentially by the research team and be used only for the RegALE project’s purposes.

Let's get our hands dirty! A new EAEA background report on greening adult learning and education

Time is moving quickly, and anything around the term "sustainability" has gained widespread attention in the past years. From the dinner table to the Sunday night talk show and into our local adult education centres, sustainability is arriving at the centre stage of many European societies. What is at stake and what are our pathways to advocacy for a sustainable future for all?
