EduMAP recommends to pay attention to vulnerable young learners’ needs and to set explicit goals (Policy Brief)

The findings indicate that current adult education policies are more often focused on country specific agendas than on vulnerable learners’ interests and needs.

This and other findings presented in this Policy Brief have been revealed through the review of literature, statistics and documentary evidence. The EduMAP recommends adult education policies, programmes and actions to pay attention to vulnerable young learners’ needs and to set explicit goals for the promotion of social, economic and political aspects of active citizenship. Such goal setting should recognise the complexity of vulnerability and seek balance between the humane-personal and instrumental-societal value of adult education.

This Policy Brief summarises the country specific findings of the EduMAP state-of-the-art report “Broad Research on Adult Education in the EU”. Download the Policy Brief as PDF here or view it below.
