To thrive in a fast-changing world, everyone, including adults, needs a wide range of knowledge and skills – and to keep developing them throughout life. The objective of the European Agenda for Adult Learning is to encourage more adults to return to learning. To accomplish this, the EU and Member States have adopted a diverse array of strategies, tools and policy initiatives aimed at improving the availability and overall quality, quantity and accessibility of adult learning opportunities.
This leaflet explains how the EU and its partners are improving vocational education and training (VET) to make them relevant to current and future labour markets. Work-based learning, access to VET, ongoing training for teachers and recognition of skills and qualifications are expected to help drive jobs and growth. The New Skills Agenda for Europe and the Riga Conclusions lay the foundations for this process. Progress in achieving the goals set out will be monitored by CEDEFOP and the ETF.

This study evaluates the performance of European countries in the field of adult education and training and identifies a set of success factors to achieve effective adult learning policy.
The study aimed to contribute to the work of the Commission and Member States in achieving the objectives set out in the Education and Training 2020 Strategy (ET 2020), which aims (inter alia) to raise the currently largely static rates of adult participation in learning towards the ET 2020 target of 15%, thus contributing to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
