Welcome to "AE-PRO" - the European Adult Education Professionals Learning Platform
In 2013 a group of adult educators from across Europe came together to see how they could disseminate, accredit and enhance experience of adult learning electronically. The first course, looking at the various aspects of adult education across Europe, was so successful that a second phase was created looking at adult education in the future. Those courses stand as resources and the sustained "AE PRO" platform continues to provide stimulation, inspiration and learning around adult education in the EU.
FutureLabAE: “Change-oriented Adult education”
The FutureLabAE project addresses two main issues: the situation of
democracy in Europe, where an increasing number of citizens, who,
discontent with the political establishment, start leaning towards
xenophobic and populist parties or choose not to vote at all; and the
alarmingly high number of people in Europe who lack basic skills,
especially digital skills, leaving parts of the population unable to
benefit from the digital transformation. Adult education has a role to
play in supporting societies and individuals to cope with these two
In the framework of the project, two online courses will be launched. The first course is focused on change-oriented adult education and digitalisation, and it will run from the 27th of April to the 5th of July 2020. The second one is focused on change-oriented adult education and democracy, and it will run between the 12th of October and the 20th of December 2020.
UP-AEPRO: “Innovate – Learn, Share, Act”

(AE) trainers and staff to learn more about European developments in
adult education and other countries’ systems and innovation.
The course started on the 6th of May and ended on the 5th of November 2019. Content
