European Agenda Adult Learning (EAAL)


IMG_3960Donegal ETB Promotional activity event The European Commission is currently working with 32 countries to implement the European Agenda for Adult Learning. This highlights the need to increase participation in adult learning. In order to do this the Commission coordinates  a network of National Coordinators whose role it is to promote adult learning, provide support and gather and disseminate examples of best practice.

AONTAS have assumed the role of National Coordinator taking over from the Department of Education and Skills who coordinated the first project  (2012- 2014) and involved a partnership between ETBI, AONTAS and NALA. AONTAS was then responsible for the coordination of the second phase of the project which ran until November 2015. In late 2015 AONTAS was successful in their application for a further two year project (2015–2017) ‘Learning Today for a Better Tomorrow’ which will continue to build on the work of the project.
