The Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe – known as EPALE – is a new initiative funded by the Erasmus+ programme. It is open to teachers, trainers and volunteers, as well as policy-makers, researchers and academics involved in adult learning. The site offers interactive networks, enabling users to link with others all around Europe, engage in discussions and exchange good practice.
A calendar of European and national events keeps users up to date on professional development opportunities and can be a helpful tool to prepare mobility activities. Partner search features can also support the preparation of cooperation projects. A library of resources, news feeds and feature articles by leading experts in adult learning ensure that the latest adult education policy and debates are accessible to EPALE users. EPALE is implemented by a Central Support Service and a network of National Support Services in Erasmus+ Programme countries, which are in charge of identifying interesting information and encourage stakeholders to use and contribute to the platform. EPALE can be accessed at: http://ec.europa.eu/epale.
