RegALE will impact various target groups :
IF YOU WORK FOR AN ADULT EDUCATION ORGANISATION, you can be supported through capacity building strategies and thus improve your way of reaching out to learners, increase your capacity to support trainers and staff and engage policy-makers into strategic discussions. You will also learn about EU policies, initiatives applied by peers and exchange resources, practices and tools with other organisations all over Europe.
IF YOU WORK FOR A REGIONAL AND LOCAL AUTHORITY dealing with lifelong learning policies, you will gain a better understanding of needs and challenges of adult education providers operating in your area. You will become acquainted with ways to mobilise local/regional actors and support cooperation among the ALE sector in the region/municipality. You will also learn about best practices and initiatives applied successfully in other contexts.
IF YOU ARE AN ADULT EDUCATOR, you will be empowered to voice your difficulties in meeting learners’ needs and discuss with other peers about possible solutions for doing this. Furthermore, they will learn from other countries’ practices and experiences; improve your capacity to make a difference in learners’ lives; as well as have arguments, hands-on documents and more expertise in making their work visible among learners, policy-makers and the general public.
IF YOU ARE AN EDUCATION EXPERT, AN EMPLOYER OR A REPRESENTATIVE OF ORGANISATION WORKING IN OTHER FIELDS OF EDUCATION, PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT SERVICES, CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS, you will learn from the project approach, appreciate the cooperation with better informed interlocutors and be inspired by the project outputs, which you might consider transfer into your fields and to promote within their outreach and contacts.
IF YOU ARE A POLICY-MAKER, you will receive concrete suggestions on how to contribute to more effective and more sustainable adult learning policies. You will have a better understanding of how adult education contributes to address Europe’s main societal challenges, will improve your cooperation with ALE organisations, will learn new concepts and translate them into policy initiative and will have a collection of best practices that could support them when drafting successful policies.
Considering the above positive impact, REGALE will benefit enormously ADULT LEARNERS and LOCAL COMMUNITIES. The first receive more and better support from AE staff and trainers, more useful and enriching courses by ALE providers as well as more and better support from the political level. The second will benefit from better ALE policies and practice.
