Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe


Research and evaluation best practices

We got an amazing experience to be invited to the EPALE Conference 2019. We gained new knowledge, information regarding the adult learning, also about how to use the platform and how we will be able to leverage it in the future.

We also got an opportunity to share our experiences with EPALE platform. As we are starting now our Erasmus Plus projects, we will be even more aware of all great features, which is offering EPALE for project implementation and dissemination.

Thank you again team EPALE, EPALE Slovakia, we really appreciate to get this opportunity.

After two years of continuous work, our Erasmus+ strategic partnership "Languages, Opening Gates to Society" (LOGS) has finished. Four organizations from  four different European countries were involved: 

  • The Finnish Folk High School, Gothenburg, Sweden (coordinator)
  • CFA Catalonia, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain (partner)
  • Jazyková škola Poprad, Czech republic (partner)
  • Tartu Folk High School, Tartu, Estonia (partner)

The objectives of projects were:

Although creativity and innovation are considered one of the key driving forces in modern economies, to date there have been few approaches concerning creativity and innovation management. There are also very few educational approaches applied at the interface of continuing education, institutes of higher education and business that systematically promote these skills and competencies.

The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training announces annually since 1991 the Miguel Hernández Awards. This award is aimed at the recognition and dissemination of the work carried out by public institutions, non-profit private entities and public adult education centers that are distinguished by developing an innovative and quality educational work.

In the same way, actions that can contribute to the participation and permanence in permanent formation and lifelong learning in adults are recognized.

NHS England has launched its Healthy New Towns Programme guidance – a leaflet that discusses the ten principles to building healthy new places, their benefits and provides a range of case studies as evidence. The housing development sites that are working with the Programme and the NHS aim to share best practice, their own case studies and supply guidance so that the country can take a unified and high quality approach to new developments on land previously used by the government. 

ESREA – European Society for Research on the Education of Adults with the organisational support of University of Belgrade and Adult Education Society from Serbia is organizing the 9th Triennial European Research Conference entitled “Adult education research and practice between the welfare state and neoliberalism“ which will be held in September 19-22, 2019 in Belgrade, Serbia.

Termelékenységük növelése érdekében a multinacionális nagyvállalatok, a közép-és kisvállalkozások évről-évre egyre nagyobb figyelmet fordítanak  dolgozóik  munkahelyi továbbképzésére.

A nagy érdeklődésre való tekintettel 2019. február 14-15-én Londonban került megszervezésre az európai munkahelyi tanulás támogatását célzó technológiákat, jó gyakorlatokat bemutató kiállítás és konferencia.

How can educators best nurture balanced global citizenship education? In her blog post Researcher Madeleine Le Bourdon shares insights from her ongoing research, pointing to the importance of informal spaces in citizenship education – a neglected field of study – and provides five recommendations for practitioners teaching on global citizenship topics.

The importance of lifelong learning and the development of many skills we need for the future are some of the more important issues that professionals and career practitioners are dealing with in many countries. The idea and initiative to organize the Cross-Border seminar this year also brings with it significant benefits to the participants. For almost 15 years, the practice of maintaining this kind of cooperation with countries active in the field of Career Guidance and Counselling (CgaC) has proven useful and important in improving the competencies of career practitioners. The theme of this year's Cross Border Seminar held in Bled, Slovenia was "Skills for the future".

Field research on the employment of ex-convicts and probationers

Surveys were carried out with 8,243 employers active across 81 provinces of Turkey and 1,890 ex-convicts and probationers as part of the "European Agenda for Adult Learning 4" project carried out within the Ministry of National Education General Directorate for Life Long Learning with backing by the European Union. The main purpose of these surveys is to determine the issues regarding the employment of ex-convicts and probationers in Turkey, and to reveal the views of these people and as well as employers on this topic.

In the past two years, professionals of the Government Office of Békés County and its partner organisations - Alfaképző KISOSZ Advocacy and Training Association and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Békés County - have been studying best practices and methods applied in European countries for improving national employability opportunities of young adults within the frames of the project entitled 'YES (Young Employment Start) - European best practices for youth employment.

Global issues such as climate change and natural resource consumption levels, urgently require a change in our lifestyles and a transformation in our ways of thinking and acting. To achieve this change, we need new skills, new values and new behaviours that lead to more sustainable societies. But is it even possible to find a shared definition of circular economy (CE) education?

Stories can be the means by which people work out their thoughts and ideas: they can be an exploration, a search for meaning or an offering up to others. People's stories about their experiences provide useful insights into what is happening in their lives and communities. The Our Voices project seeks to find innovative ways of curating people’s stories so that the ideas, messages and knowledge within them can be better shared with the people, groups and organisations in a position to use them to create positive change in communities across Europe.

A large group of people are not sufficiently educated to get jobs or function properly as citizens, a fact which has been substantiated in one study after the other.

It is not that campaigns or educational opportunities have been lacking, but those kinds of opportunities cannot solve the problem alone because a good portion of the people in question cannot find the proper motivation they need to overcome the limitations they have due to their lack of education.

Higher education in a globalising world focuses on current policy discourse in higher education. It discusses globalisation, Lifelong Learning, the EU’s higher education discourse – this discourse’s regional ramifications – and alternative practices in higher education from both the minority and majority worlds with their different learning traditions and epistemologies. Mayo scours the wide range of alternative practices in higher education used around the world, many of which are at their embryonic stage.

The National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE)  and Euroguidance Ireland host regular study visits with the aim of supporting the sharing of best practice in guidance among practitioners and other relevant professionals.

Between the 19th and 21st February 2019,  NCGE / Euroguidance Ireland hosted a study visit in Dublin with representatives from Belgium (Flanders), Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Romania.
