In 2011, The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills commissioned Taylor Nelson Sofres to conduct longitudinal research in order to build a deeper and more robust understanding of the various impacts of community learning on individuals, families and communities. The research consists of a multi-cohort longitudinal design. All learners in this cohort completed a community learning course between July 2011 and February 2012.

Stakeholders are closely involved in the development and dissemination of ESCO.

This is an independent report prepared by the European Lifelong Guidance Policy Network (ELGPN), a Member State network in receipt of EU financial support under the Lifelong Learning Programme. The kit is designed to help policy-makers and other stakeholders to review existing lifelong guidance provision within their country or region, and to identify issues requiring attention and gaps that need to be filled, drawing from practices in other European countries.

UNESCO's Institute for Lifelong Learning Effective Literacy Practices Database Experience is an open database of effective literacy practices across the world. In order to encourage all key actors to share their experiences and gain inspiration from innovative approaches in the field of literacy, this website provides a selection of effective adult literacy and numeracy programmes from all regions of the world.

Policy brief from European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE) on how workers' skills are crucial for success on modern labour markets. The brief examines evidence from the new Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) that suggests that skills are highly valued in modern economies. On average, going up one (out of five) PIAAC proficiency levels is associated with an 18 percent wage increase. But the labor-market returns to skills differ widely across European countries, from 12 to 24 percent.

Policy brief from European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE) on the need to activate universities as engines of growth in Europe.

The European area of skills and qualifications report presents the results of a survey on the views of stakeholders on the problems faced by learners and workers with regard to the transparency and recognition of their skills and qualifications when moving within and between EU Member States, on the adequacy of the related European policies and instruments, and on the potential benefits of developing a “European Area of Skills and Qualifications”.

The Education and Training Monitor is an instrument to foster and encourage evidence-based policy making. It is an annual report that illustrates, in a succinct document, the evolution of education and training systems across Europe. It takes into account a variety of benchmarks and indicators, as well as recent studies and policy developments.

The country reports are divided into two sections. The section Policy and Politics gives an overview of the key policy currently in force, and also outlines the main legislation or political situation in the country. Structure and Providers gives a more detailed look at the organizational structures, and also outlines the main adult education providers, mainly looking at non-formal and informal learning.

The importance of a highly skilled workforce has become increasingly relevant in the context of the European Union new strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth - Europe 2020. At the individual level, a good education is increasingly decisive for employment prospects and earnings levels. Hence, education and training systems must generate new skills, to respond to the nature of the new jobs, which are expected to be created, as well as to improve the adaptability and employability of adults already in the labour force. This publication attempts to address these issues.

This report studies the potential of these new online activities for lifelong learning as part of a larger project launched by Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) with DG Education and Culture. The overall project studies what contributes to the emergence and success of learning in ICT enabled communities, and how these communities could promote quality and innovation in lifelong learning and education systems in Europe.

In 2008, as part of their policy support activities, the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies and DG Education and Culture launched a study to explore the innovative social and pedagogical approaches to learning that are emerging in new ICT-enabled collaborative settings. This report is the final report of the project. It synthesises the overall research results, discusses their implications and makes suggestions for the various stakeholders in education and training.

The report analyses how the competence learning to learn has been defined. It highlights different understandings which have been developed from within the socialcultural and cognitive psychological paradigms. It investigates the European definition of learning to learn and how it broadly transverses these epistemological positions. The report also establishes what learning is not by visiting concepts such as intelligence, problem-solving and learning strategies.

The report argues that ICT have an important role to play in developing learning opportunities for older people in an ageing society. It points to both opportunities (e.g. more individualized learning) and obstacles (e.g. not user-friendly ICT) as well as to the need to involve all actors in the development of ICT-enabled learning tools. It concludes that holistic policies are needed to support learning opportunities in ageing societies, enabled by ICT.
