Equity and social inclusion

 

EPALE's thematic focus for March is on equity and inclusion in adult learning

Participation rates in adult learning across Europe vary from country to country, but there is a common challenge that all European countries face – making adult learning accessible to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. Studies show that people with more opportunities and better education are more likely to participate in adult learning, which can further contribute to inequalities in the sector.

Here at EPALE we believe that adult learning can be a powerful tool for social inclusion and for changing people’s lives for the better. Check out EPALE’s thematic pages Social inclusion and Barriers to learning where the community and the national teams have gathered interesting articles, useful resources and case studies on the topic (content varies based on your language preference). Visit EPALE regularly for new content in March!

We would like to invite you to join EPALE’s live discussion on how to ensure optimal inclusion in adult learning on the provision and policy levels. The discussion will be in English and will take place on this page on 22 March 2018. It will be moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinator Simon Broek.

We hope to see you there!
