Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe


What is the EPALE definition of adult learning?

EPALE subscribes to the Council of the European Union’s definition of adult learning as stated in the 2011 Council Resolution on a renewed European agenda for adult learning: “the term adult learning covers the entire range of formal, non-formal and informal learning activities — both general and vocational — undertaken by adults after leaving initial education and training.”
