Recent developments in Spain
Throughout the years, adult education has been receiving more and more attention from cultural institutions and the Labour Department. EAEA members in the country contribute the ongoing shift to immigration. Adult education is therefore seen as a solution to integrating foreigners into Spanish society and the job-market.
On the agenda of EAEA members is the promotion of lifelong learning, literacy education and the professional development of adult educators.
Spain has increased access to adult education for young people aged 16-18 who attend work which otherwise prevents their access to traditional education programmes for students their age. This is a strong initiative for supporting vulnerable school drop-outs develop a more positive relationship with education and training.
