Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe



The final FORINER conference is fast approaching, and will take place in Brussels on 28 November 2017, where the partners will ensure that important steps are taken to provide more and better distance education to foreign national prisoners throughout Europe.

On 19 September 2017, EPALE Belgium organized an event titled 'What is the European Commission doing to improve adult learning?', in cooperation with the European Commission and the European Association for the education of Adults (EAEA). The afternoon started with a quiz presented by the three Belgian EPALE-coordinators to find out how well the participants know the platform. Ms. Martina Ní Cheallaigh from DG Employment at the Commission explained what they have been doing to improve policy and provision for adult learning in Europe. Gina Ebner from EAEA took a look at the role of civil society. Then the participants discussed what they had learned, what this meant for people in adult education in their everyday job, and what support is needed to improve adult learning.
