Organisation: European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA)
Dates: 7 November 2017
Target audience: The webinar is organised in cooperation with the ET2020 Working Group on adult learning. The participation is open to everyone interested. In particular, the National Coordinators for European Agenda for Adult Learning, local, regional and national policy-makers as well as adult learning stakeholders working at the meso-level are encouraged to take part.
Description: Europe is currently facing great challenges – growing inequalities; high unemployment; persistent discrimination of disadvantaged groups such as the Roma, refugees and migrants; insufficient basic skills. These challenges could be tackled by reaching out to adults that are not learning and that are caught in a low-skilled trap, engaging them into lifelong learning opportunities and supporting them in making one step up in their lives and careers.To tackle the issue, the implOED project aims at providing recommendations for policy-makers and adult education practitioners for engaging disadvantaged groups into learning. This webinar is part of the project’s implementation and focuses on the role and challenges of national policies in planning and implementing outreach strategies in adult education.
