The Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe (EPALE) is a multilingual open membership community for professionals involved in Adult Learning. It was designed with input from practitioners and is intended for all those active in the field, including teachers, trainers, researchers, academics, and policy makers. EPALE is funded by the European Union through Erasmus+. It is administered in participating countries by a National Support Service, which in Ireland is Léargas.
The dedicated EPALE website is the hub for adult learning news, reports, events and discussion across Europe. You can browse articles, receive updates, and search the extensive database of adult learning resources (including policy documents and project results). Registered members can also upload content and contribute to discussions. See here for how to register and get involved.
EPALE is organised around five key themes in adult learning:
Support materials and resources for each of these themes can be easily accessed on the EPALE website. Users of the site can also contribute resources they feel would be relevant, either through the ‘suggest a resource’ function or by contacting email@example.com.
EPALE needs your voice! Activate the adult learning community in Ireland and across Europe by contributing a blog post, sharing your resources or adding details of your organisation to the partner search facility.
