About Inducate

Why is this project necessary?

European adult learners with health-related conditions face risks of social exclusion and barriers to employability. 

There is an international consensus that they need special support to develop their skills, knowledge and competences to overcome these obstacles.

IINDUCATE (2019-2022) is an Erasmus+ project that aims to address this challenge by delivering an Integrated Assessment Framework to evaluate adult education providers’ effectiveness for adult learners facing situations of exclusion related to their health conditions.

INDUCATE will provide adult education staff with greater understanding of the needs of individuals with health-related conditions and help them deliver more efficient education programmes. 

How do we plan to do it? 

Adult education providers will engage in a self-assessment process to evaluate the impact of their training, will be able to develop quality improvement plans and will share their practices with their peers. An enlarged European network of adult education providers and other interested bodies will be set up.

INDUCATE brings together 5 organisations from different European countries acting in the field of adult learning provision, educational research & policy development (learn more about the participating organisations)
