Webinar - The unreachables in adult education

Let Europe Know About Adult Education (LEK-AE) - 09/05/2017

Let Europe know about adult education According to Eurostat (2012)[1] circa 24% of the European population risks poverty or social exclusion. Besides this UNICEF (2008)[2] concludes that 22% of the population of the industrialized countries is illiterate. Both figures show the need of upgrading the status and increasing the livability of an enormous group of inhabitants. Our group of "vulnerable adults" still increases every day. Therefore investment in this group, for example in upgrading their skills is needed. Especially in times of economic crisis we should be aware of clever interventions for inhabitants risking social exclusion or unemployment. For example low skilled and illiterate learners are vulnerable groups in these times, due to their lack of possibilities in showing their competencies. Therefore adult education is needed in order to upgrade their skills and to increase their possibilities for social inclusion and reintegration into the labor market.

But the major issue is that it is still hard to reach these potential learners. Although it seems the case that a lot of inhabitants face serious problems and will benefit adult learning we still don’t have clever solutions to reach them in an easy way. New studies show what most successful ways in reaching vulnerable adults are. Join our webinar to find out what the newest possibilities are in order to reach the vulnerable adults for adult learning? Take the opportunity to improve your daily work and to become successful in reaching the unreachable vulnerable adults for joining adult education.
