Adult learning statistical synthesis report

This report presents a synthesis of country-level statistical reports which outline and analyse data relating to adult learning participation, providers, and financing in Europe’s Member States. The aim of this report is to present an overview and summary of 28 country reports, in order to highlight the picture across the European Member States with regard to adult learning participation and financing in particular, but also adult learning providers. The country-level reports, produced with the input of independent country experts in the field of adult learning, are available separately.

The synthesis report is broken down into three main sections; adult learning participation, adult learning providers, and the financing of adult learning, and it aims to provide an overarching synthesis of the picture across the EU, drawing on the review of country-level statistical reports.
