  2. Why adult learning is important? There are many reasons but two of them seem to be particularly alarming: Quantitative labour supply Qualification needs The only solution is boosting adult learning But looking at quantitative projections is not enough 2004 2050

  3. Are we sufficiently aware of the challenge? Probably not. „Make the case for skills”(the first message) „Skills, the right skills, are the key to moving us out of recession into recovery, and the best guarantee of our ability to sustain our growth and secure lasting economic success” New Skills for New Jobs: Action Now.A report by the Expert Group on New Skills for New Jobs prepared for the European Commission

  4. High level of awareness at community level… „The Commission is fully aware that an effective adult learning sector is vital to our economy andsociety for the next decade (…) We remain as committed to this as ever” Commissioner AndroullaVassiliou’sspeech at the Grundtvig 10th anniversary conference

  5. … but uneven awareness and readiness to act at the level of Member States As it is strongly reflected in national policies and conditions… Coherent LLL policy with legal frameworks stressing AE (AT, BE, CZ, DK, EE, PT, LT, LU, NL, NO, LI, FI, FR, DE, IS, IE, SI, SE and UK) Developed LLL policies but AE not stressed(HR, EL, MT and IT) No coherent strategy but important steps to develop AE(CY, LV, PL, HU, ES) No coherent policy(BG, RO, TR). and also in national policy outcomes Source: Impact of ongoing reforms in education and training on the adult learning sector(2nd phase).Final report. Research voorBeleid. 2010

  7. A new „Triple Helix” for the learning sector? Options for the future The formal system Concluding questions The non-formal sector Workplaces

  8. Thank you for your attention! „Those who predict a 21st centuryofadult learning,just as the 19th and 20th saw the development of schools and universities, maynot be far from the truth…” Commissioner AndroullaVassiliou’sspeech at the Grundtvig 10th anniversary conference
