A Toolkit for Developing, Implementing and Monitoring Adult Education Strategies
Kenny, Michael
Participation in adult education varies significantly across states and regions of Europe! Why? Evidence and literature suggests a wide disparity in policy making, programming and implementation skills in the adult education sector across Europe. It is imperative that policy makers and programme managers address this disparity to foster life-long learning for a smart-sustainable Europe (see EU2020 and to achieve a European target of 15% of the adult population engaged in learning. In response to this challenge, the ERASMUS+ DIMA project (See, 2015 to 2017) developed a practical and innovative toolkit to guide adult education policy and practice. The DIMA toolkit (See introduces tools for developing, implementing, and monitoring adult education policies, strategies, and practices. Working through six (6) partners in five (5) countries over two (2) years the DIMA project is in line with the Erasmus+ horizontal priority of "… contributing to the development of a European Area of Skills and Qualifications" and with the specific priorities of enhancing and aligning European adult education policies, strategies and practices.
