Adult educator - competences of the future

In October 2020, a conference was held in Poland entitled "Adult educator - competences of the future" organized by the Innovation and Knowledge Foundation summarizing and disseminating the results of the project "Expanding and developing the competences of adult educators" co-financed by the Erasmus + program.

The aim of the conference was to present the results of the project and summarize the results of research on the functioning of adult education systems in Europe - in England, Poland and Italy. Conclusions from good practices were collected during pilot training and project implementation in selected countries.

During the conference, the publications that are the result of the project were also discussed:

1. A report on the functioning of adult education systems in selected European countries, which summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of adult education systems in all three countries and indicates areas for change.

2. Development of competences of adult educators. A training manual for individual and group work - download the manual in PDF

The handbook consists of 5 thematic modules with a description of individual competences, as well as educational exercises and diagnostic tools. Each module includes a detailed syllabus training program for the use and organization of the workshops. The material was also tested during pilot online training.

The ENG version of the manual can be downloaded here:
