Adult learning in the workplace: Building blocks and policy examples

This CoP is a follow-up of the ET2020 working group on Adult learning but is open to all those interested in adult learning in the workplace. The aim is to further disseminate the results of the ET2020 working group on adult learning (2016-2018) and exchange of policy examples in relation to the identified building blocks on how to stimulate adult learning in the workplace:

1.Encourage employers to adopt a learning culture that supports career-long learning
2.Ensures that adult learning in the workplace puts learners on a lifelong learning pathway (and is supported by guidance systems and validation of prior leaning)
3.Secure the long-term commitment of all stakeholders
4.Ensure effective coordination between all stakeholders and agree on roles and responsibilities
5.Communication about adult learning in the workplace using the language of those needed to be encouraged
6.Ensure sustainable co-funding systems in which all see the benefit of investing in adult learning in the workplace
7.Ensure that workplace learning is tailored to adult learners' needs
8.Ensure that adult learning in the workplace responds to employers' needs
9.Assure the quality of adult learning in the workplace

It would be great to to be able to collate policy toolkits across EU Member States that document adult learning in the workplace from a policy perspective as well as to find insightful case studies, all in one place.

Member State experts worked the last 2 years on understanding better what can be done to promote adult learning in the workplace. This was facilitated by the European Commission in the framework of the ET2020 Working group on Adult Learning.

The final report of their work is now available.

It became a practical report meant to inspire stakeholders, whether they are a governmental organisation, an enterprise, a trade union, a training provider, civil society, or adult learning professional.

The idea of the CoP is to work further on the building blocks as identified by the Adult Learning Working Group. It would be good to exchange policy examples and practical issues on how to work on the building blocks.

My question to you is the following: What do you want to get out of this CoP?
