EAEA analysis and recommendations on PIAAC published

EAEA analysis and recommendations were accepted by the EAEA board meeting in Paris held on 11 - 12 of February of 2014.

EAEA has published a thorough analysis based on the results of the OECD adult skills survey PIAAC. The analysis reflects on the PIAAC results in a deep manner, indicating how adult education can help improve the skills of the European adult population. EAEA recognises three scenarios that threaten the European adult population unless these issues are tackled. To overcome these issues, EAEA presents a set of recommended actions.

The PIAAC - A Wake-up Call for Europe! analysis paper and recommendations were presented in Paris to Mr Andrew Mac Intyre, Ms Ji Eun Chung and Ms Siv Hilde Lindström from the OECD.
