Adult learning for vocational purposes and in the workplace: challenges and future
What are the challenges and possible solutions for improving adult learning for vocational purposes and in the workplace? We would love to hear your thoughts in this online discussion.
As a follow-up to our discussion on the European vision for adult learning in the 2020s, we would like you to share your opinion on any of the topics below. Engage with your peers from across Europe in this online discussion moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinator Simon Broek.
Learning in the workplace is not just a matter of providing courses or learning opportunities: success relies heavily on the organisation of work. For instance, if the job solely concerns routine tasks, employees are not really encouraged to learn (see EPALE summary: August focus on workplace learning or Organisation of work: Reflections on an often forgotten workplace learning dimension).
The ET2020 Working group on adult learning 2016-2018 focused on adult learning in the workplace and published an inspiring report with building blocks on how to stimulate policies in this area.
