We are the provincial association of the Volkshochschulen (Adult Education Colleges) of Saxony-Anhalt (Germany). The 15 Volkshochschulen in Saxony-Anhalt with their sub-branches reach almost 80000 people per year with their immense amount of 175.000 lessons in over 7000 courses. They provide a great variety of courses in the field of continuing education for all groups of the population in all parts of our federal state. Educational offers range from general and political education through foreign language courses and vocational further training to classes in visual arts and creativity and health education. The Volkshochschule is a centre for life long learning, discussion, health and culture.
The Volkshochschulen offer courses for all interested citizens. One of it principle goals is to bring together people from different cultures with different interests, various spheres of life, people with disabilities and people of different age-groups and to give them the chance to learn together.
In all our work we want to build bridges between the various cultures, generations and layers of society.
In cooperation with partners, we would like to gain important insights into the adult education sector in Europe. This offers our members and our organisation the opportunity educational programs adapt better for the European needs and thus better to support the EU's aims.
