Purpose of group
The Learning and Work Institute, UK National Coordinator for the EAAL, draft report ‘The Impact of Adult Learning’, concludes that the UK needs to take the approach of a lifelong learning strategy that brings together education, health, justice, employment and other services in a coordinated effort. This is echoed by research undertaken by the UK Government’s Foresight team into lifelong learning and skills, as well as that commissioned by the Institutes for Adult Learning and presented to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Adult Education.In the coming weeks in advance of the October conference ‘Adult Learning: Setting the Agenda’, a joint event between the UK National Coordinator for the EAAL and EPALE UK, we will be presenting a series of think pieces on EPALE. These think pieces introduces the themes of Health, Work and Communities and the contribution that adult learning can make to these specific policy agendas. This Communities of Practice is designed to bring together the thoughts and views from those involved in adult learning.
