Recent developments in the Ukraine

At the moment, the new “Conception of Development of Adult Education in Ukraine for 2020-2022” regulation is being drafted, our member, the Ukrainian Adult Education Association, has played an active role in its formation. The Ukrainian government recognises the importance of adult education for building a society of civil engagement, social cohesion and political awareness, and so the new document is expected to unite the various actors in adult education, set a common agenda for all stakeholders, and provide adult education with a more stable place in Ukrainian education policy. The sector has already seen some positive changes, with more and more people showing their interest in learning as adults. In addition, the profession of andragogy has received national recognition, symbolising the shift in the status and value of adult educators.
