Improving the Quality of Non-Formal Adult Learning
Learning from European Best Practices on Quality Assurance
The COVID-19 crisis has reiterated the importance of adult learning and career guidance
services as many adults have lost their jobs and now require upskilling and reskilling
opportunities in order to keep pace with the rapidly evolving world of work. Yet,
in order to achieve its positive gains, adult training needs to be of high quality
and ensure successful learning experiences for all participants. This report therefore
aims at supporting public authorities to enhance quality in the field of non-formal
adult learning. It provides an overview of quality assurance systems across Europe,
highlighting their implementation features, governance structures and success factors.
Based on this analysis, the report develops a Quality Assurance in Adult Learning
Decision Tree to support the decision-making process of governments that are planning
reforms of their quality assurance systems.
