What is the European Agenda for Adult Learning and how is it implemented?

The Renewed European Agenda for Adult Learning (EAAL) defines the focus for European cooperation in adult education policies for the period to 2020. It was adopted by the Council in November 2011. In it, the Council recognises that there is a need for all adults regularly to enhance their personal and professional skills and competences, but that adult learning is the weakest link in national lifelong-learning systems. Adult participation in learning continues to be low. In order to achieve an effective adult learning sector, more needs to be done.   Among the issues targeted for action in the Agenda are: increasing the possibilities for all adults to access flexible, high-quality learning at any time in their lives; developing new approaches to adult education focusing on learning outcomes; raising awareness that learning is a lifelong endeavour; developing effective lifelong guidance systems and systems for validating non-formal and informal learning.

To facilitate cooperation between European countries and the Commission in implementing the EAAL, each participating country has a National Coordinator. Each National Coordinator sets out a work programme which identifies the specific actions their organisation is going to take to implement the EAAL in their country.
