The following work stems from the macrotopic of the Winter School 2019 “The European Union & lifelong learning: impact on national/regional adult education policies”.
In this context we want to make a contribution for a comparative research between different countries. The specific question that has emerged is the following: Adult Learning and Education (ALE) policies implemented in Italy: from CTPs to CPIAs.
The goal is to understand the influence of European Union in national and local adult education, specifically in Italian policies.
The example that has been examined is that of the CPIAs (Provincial Centres for School Education for Adults) which develop a series of activities organized by the school in collaboration with local realities. To analyse this reality we will use some analytical tools such as: the Democratic Emancipatory Model; the Modernisation and State Control Model; and the Human Resources Mmodel proposed by Lima and Guimarães (2011).
Key Words: European Union, Italian ALE policies, formal education, local.
