Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe



AONTAS, the National Adult Learning Organisation in partnership with Cork Learning City launched the 2019 edition of The Adult Learner Journal in Cork City Hall on Tuesday 18th of June.

Founded in the mid-1980s, The Adult Learner is the only peer-reviewed Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education that engages with issues across the spectrum of adult learning, both in Ireland and on an international level.

The 2019 edition of the Journal is a special issue to mark AONTAS’ 50 year anniversary as the voice of adult learning and focuses on changes in the field of adult, further and community education over the past 50 years.

You can find and access a copy of the 2019 edition of The Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education: The Adult Learner on EPALE here.

Funding of £100m for refugee English lessons has been removed from the Adult Education Budget. This has led to refugees feeling lonely, isolated and unable to secure work in the UK. Refugee Action and ESOL providers have carried out studies that expose the struggles faced by refugees. The Department for Education has described plans to implement an ESOL strategy in 2019.

 The Critical Thinking for Mediawise Citizens – CriThink project, implemented by Metamorphosis Foundation in partnership with Eurothink, supported by the European Union, announces this request for applications to provide support to initiatives of local civil society organizations in partnership with media and other stakeholders, which will promote creation of culture of critical thinking through promotion of media literacy.
