The aims of the conference

How do we bring about the best competence development for Nordic adult educators? What competences are needed?


Several Nordic and European studies point to the importance of the adult educator in offering adult education of high quality. The Nordic Council of Ministers has through Nordic network for adult learning (NVL) and Nordplus Adult supported multiple projects focusing at supporting the competence development of adult educators.


The aim of this conference is to continue this work through a Nordic meeting where participants will

  • Exchange and put perspectives on existing Nordic project and results from initiatives in Nordic Council of Ministers, NVL and Nordplus Adult within the theme of ”competence development of those who organise, facilitate and carry out adult education”
  • Get a collective view on the needs of those who organise, facilitate and carry out adult education in different contexts ,e.g. public and private work places, in formal general and vocational adult education, in liberal education and third sector
  • Recommend and bring new ideas to the work ahead in qualifying competence development of those who are engaged in learning processes for adult learners.
