Highlights on Adult Learning

  • “The European Agenda for Adult Learning, adopted in November 2011, is set to launch a concrete joint programme that makes adult learning a stronger link in the lifelong learning chain. But the first challenge we need to address is to increase participation in adult learning and to make everyone – learners, providers, stakeholders and policy makers – aware of the benefits of a high quality, easily accessible and equitable adult learning system.”
    European Guide, Strategies for improving participation in and awareness of adult learning, 2012
  • “A first proposal therefore qould be to start exploring qhat quality culture actually means, […]. Yet, there are some intertesting examples in the QALLL project sample which use individual and collective self-evaluation, teamwork, stakeholders involvment, peer review, etc. to foster a quality culture. These good practices could be used to stimulate approaches to quality assurance that strike a more even balance between accountability and quality improvement.”
    QALLL project, QALLLitative Report, 2012
  • “In most countries there is a consensus that quality assurance systems should be developed for the adult learning sector, and especially for the non-formal sector. […] Nevertheless, the main challenge is to implement these strategies. Experience shows that it takes a long time to build consensus on the idea and content of quality systems”
