Project summary

Participation in adult education represents an attitude of lifelong learning which serves different objetives for a variety of people. Irrespective of the age, origin, social or economic background, adult education must be accessible, transparent and visible. However, some adults are struggling to find their way through the adult education scenery and cannot see the wood for the trees. The aim of this project is to (1) raise participation on adult education, (2) decrease the inequality in participation on adult education (matheuseffect) and (3) to improve the impartial adult education information and guidance service with the task of increasing awareness, offer information, orientation and guidance by using a participatory approach in which people themselves become responsible for creating their own learning path (in formal, non-formal and informal learning), but with some guidance of 'experts' in the educational field.

By creating a partnership between Belgium, Lithuania, Finland, the United Kingdom, Austria and Slovenia good practices and methods will be exchanged through project management team meetings and study visits to each other's organisations. Each partner has an own context, vision, experiences, methods, instruments and tools in adult educational information and guidance service which guarantees a broad spectrum to create a strategic partnership. By sharing good practices, implementing and evaluating methods, the project aims the creation or elaboration of a central service point (a one stop learning shop) in each organisation which is adapted to the specific context of the country. This idea of adult educational information and guidancee service should be eventually implemented in the policy system of adult education.
