European Agenda for Adult Learning

Adult learning plays a significant role in the implementation of the “Europe 2020” strategy. In this area, primarily low-skilled and older workers should be given the opportunity to take part in learning processes and to improve their skills through individual offers. The objective here is to pave the way for social participation.

The priorities for European collaboration in adult education policy from 2012 to 2020 are identified in the “renewed European Agenda for Adult Learning”. Among other issues, this covers the action plan for adult learning (2008-2010) and the strategic framework for European collaboration in the area of education and vocational training (ET 2020).

European priorities for the Agenda (2012-2014):

  • Realisation of lifelong learning and mobility;
  • Improvement of the quality and efficiency of general and vocational training;
  • Promotion of justice, social cohesion and active citizenship;
  • Promotion of innovation and creativity at all levels of education and vocational training;
  • Improvement of the knowledge base for adult education and monitoring of this sector.
