Help shape the new European adult learning platform!

Thu 17 Apr 2014 01:09:00 PM EEST

The Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe - known as EPALE - has launched a survey for adult education professionals in order to develop the contents of the platform.

The EPALE platform is the latest development in the EU’s long-term commitment to promoting high quality adult learning in Europe. It will be open to teachers, trainers and volunteers, as well as policy-makers, researchers and academics involved in adult learning.

Future users can already get involved: by taking the survey found on the EPALE site, they can help shape the content of the site.

Networking and resources

EPALE will deliver a range of distinctive features, making it the primary site for adult learning in Europe. The site will offer interactive networks, enabling users to link with others all around Europe, engage in discussions and exchange good practice.

A calendar of European and national events will keep users up to date on professional development opportunities. News feeds and feature articles by leading experts in adult learning will ensure that the latest adult education policy and debates are accessible to EPALE users.

EPALE will be multilingual, so users in any Member States can make full use of the site and its many resources. It is going to be an open membership site meaning that users can connect with other adult learning professionals, practitioners and volunteers throughout Europe.

The site is set to become a permanent feature of the adult learning landscape.

EPALE is funded by the European Commission, and managed through the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. It is delivered by a Central Support Service which is responsible for organising EPALE events and other activities.
