Do adult education systems across Europe ensure that adult learners are aware of all training, educational and career paths that they can access?

EDEC is an Erasmus + project (Key Action 2: strategic partnership | Adult), aiming at broadening both access to and the available educational offer for people with lower qualifications or low-skilled through the development of competences among adult education specialists (such as employment counselors, adult educators, career advisors, coaches, etc.). This, with a view to ensure that every adult learner enjoys the possibility of putting their skills and attitudes to use and of expressing their potential.

The project partners from Italy, Poland and UK have met in Warsaw on March 4th and 5th in order to kick-start the project activities and set the basis for a fructuous 2-year long cooperation in order to develop three intellectual outputs: a Report on the Functioning of Adult Education Systems in the Partnering States (IO1), a Training Package (IO2) which will be pilot-tested in a training with adult educators and the Summary Report from the Project containing also conclusions from the pilot training (IO3).

During the project implementation period, two conferences will take place in Warsaw in order to involve local and international stakeholders and keep them up to date with the project’s progress.

The partners left the meeting with a shared feeling of enthusiasm and started the preliminary research on national adult education systems for the IO1.
