Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe



Job-related adult learning and continuing vocational training in Europe

Language: EN

Posted by H. Eylem Kaya

Lifelong learning is an important component of the European Union (EU) strategy
for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Promoting it is part of the EU
guidelines for employment policies as well as the EU education and training
strategy (ET 2020). Job-related adult learning and continuing vocational training
play an essential role in this respect. Beyond initial education, they help to meet
the main skills challenges on the labour market. Adult learning and CVET are
essential to appropriate skills development for employed and non-employed
adults, in working life and particularly during transition phases. They support and
enhance economic competitiveness of enterprises and the employability of
individuals – the ability to stay and progress in employment.
