Recent developments in Liechtenstein

In recent years, the Adult Education Foundation has successfully implemented a project which aims to reach out to underrepresented learners in adult education and open up learning opportunities for those from disadvantaged backgrounds. The idea of the project is to offer low-skilled and socially disadvantaged adults vouchers to participate in various learning activities and courses.

In 2018 the foundation reached out to different stakeholders, including government offices, trade unions, and NGOs. In addition to financial incentives in the form of educational vouchers, learners also have access to improved individual educational consulting services. In order to ensure the broadest and most diverse range of services possible, non-formal adult education in Liechtenstein is presently subsidised. This is done by means of service agreements with accredited educational institutions.
