The Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe - known as EPALE - is a new initiative funded by the European Commission. The platform is the latest development in the EU’s long-term commitment to promoting high quality adult learning in Europe. It will be open to teachers, trainers and volunteers, as well as policy-makers, researchers and academics involved in adult learning.
EPALE will deliver a range of distinctive features, making it the primary site for adult learning in Europe. The site will offer interactive networks, enabling users to link with others all around Europe, engage in discussions and exchange good practice.
A calendar of European and national events will keep users up to date on professional development opportunities. News feeds and feature articles by leading experts in adult learning will ensure that the latest adult education policy and debates are accessible to EPALE users.
EPALE will be multilingual, so users in any Member States can make full use of the site and its many resources. It is going to be an open membership site meaning that users can connect with other adult learning professionals, practitioners and volunteers throughout Europe for free.
You can help shape the content of the site by completing the survey on the EPALE site.
