International launch of reference framework for adult educators

International launch of reference framework for adult educators

Educators are key to quality adult learning and education. Yet, a shortage of professional adult educators in many countries around the world still hinders progress towards the provision of lifelong learning opportunities and hence the work towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4.

That is why, on 26 May 2021, the German Institute for Adult Education (DIE), DVV International, the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) and the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) will launch a reference framework for the training of adult educators: Curriculum globALE.
