Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe



Key competences for adult learning professionals

Language: EN

Posted by Rumen HALACHEV

This study has been carried out by Research voor Beleid in partnership with the University of Glasgow, University of Thessaloniki, and the University of Leiden. During the last year the research team has studied a large number of documents on the duties, tasks, responsibilities, roles, competences and work environments of adult learning professionals, described them in a narrative, organised an expert meeting for modelling the key competences and discussed the outcomes of this modelling exercise with a broad group of stakeholders all over Europe. Overall the research team’s opinion is that this study has triggered an intensive and stimulating professional debate, and we are confident that the set of key competences could play an important role in structuring future debates and developing policies for improving the quality of adult learning.
