Thematic review on adult learning

Langue: EN


The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is conducting a thematic review on adult learning in 17 countries. Nine countries participated in a first round (Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland). The main outcomes have been published in OECD (2003) Beyond Rhetoric: Adult Learning Policies and Practices. A second round of this activity was launched in 2002 with four countries conducting a full-scale review of their adult learning system (Austria, Hungary, Mexico and Poland) and five countries focusing on low-skilled/low-educated adults (England, Germany, Korea, the Netherlands and the United States). The review involves visits by OECD multinational teams of experts to all participating countries.
During their visits, teams collect evidence from a range of stakeholders – policy makers, employers, education professionals and learners. This paper provides background information about England for the review team.
