Taking to the Top - Adult Educators on the Journey
Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

In relation to rapid changes in the labour market, aging population and immigration issues, there is a continual need for adult training in the EU member states that sets the requirements to the quality of training into a totally new perspective. Adult educators need the knowledge and skills that are necessary to train the adults of different target groups on key competences. Adult education institutions, especially non-formal education organisations, feel the need for a curriculum framework that would serve as the basis for the syllabi suitable for use in the day-to-day adult educators’ training. The main objective of the project is fostering quality improvements, innovation excellence and enhancing transnational cooperation. The main task is the development of curriculum framework for training the adult educators who teach the different target groups basic skills and key competences. The project activities will focus on the development of the curriculum framework of adult educators, including curriculum piloting and dissemination activities. The project activities are carried out by adult education organisations from six European countries (Estonia, Greece, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and UK).Main beneficiaries are seven partner organisations from six European countries, adult educators in European countries and providers of continuing education for adult educators. Other adult education stakeholders, incl. learners, decision makers and politicians can be considered as indirect beneficiaries due to the teaching quality improvement.As to the results and direct impact of the project, participating partner countries have curriculum framework based on which they can train adult educators and improve the quality of training. Implementation of national and EU policies on a larger scale can be considered as an indirect impact of the project. Intellectual outputs developed in the course of the project serve as the basis for contemporary training programmes and syllabi for adult educators` training. After the project, partners continue the activities related to the development of professionalism of adult educators, including development of adult educators` occupational qualification standards. Dissemination via EPALE platform provides the project with greater publicity and availability across Europe. The use EPALE platform also supports longer term benefits.
