Thematic Study on Adult Education in Europe
Eurydice study on Adult Education in Europe
Eurydice recently published a thematic study on adult education in Europe. The thematic study is entitled: Adults in Formal Education: Policies and Practices in Europe.
The thematic study on adult education in Europe looks at national approaches to support adult learners in their efforts to go \'one step up\' and achieve a qualification at least one level higher than they previously held.
Drafted in the context of the European Commission\'s Action Plan on Adult Learning (2007-2010), this Eurydice report on adult education in Europe, looks at education and training opportunities for under-qualified adults and also covers policies and measures for enhancing the participation of adults in higher education.
The Eurydice report on adult education in Europe reflects on several key issues faced by European countries such as:
How national systems provide adults with opportunities to go “one step up” and upgrade their educational attainment
How do they face very different challenges in raising the educational attainment of their adult population
To what extent flexible learning provision is ensured for those returning to formal education
Which strategies are put in place in order to encourage adults to return to higher education
Which financial measures support the adult participation in formal education and training
