A partnership of organisations from the Netherlands, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Finland, Switzerland and Wales are sharing ideas and strategies to engage the hardest to reach in adult learning.
The partnership will provide a series of workshops, learner stories and study visits which will exchange ideas and showcase innovative projects, around the key themes of:
- Skills for work – unemployment and worklessness
- Reaching parents through family learning
- Engaging Older people, Men and Minority Ethnic communities
- The impact of learning on health & well-being
The partnership will provide a forum for adult educators, learners and non-learners to contribute their knowledge and understanding about the barriers to learning, how to overcome these barriers and to understand more about the motivations for engaging with learning. A toolkit will be developed as a result of the partnership, which will share approaches and good practice, with case studies and learner stories to illustrate successful methodology.
