Cedefop staat voor European centre for the development of vocational training. Ondanks verbeteringen moet het volwassenenonderwijs nog steeds aantrekkelijker, toegankelijker en flexibeler worden schrijft Cedefop in een briefing note.

The EU’s benchmark for lifelong learning indicates that adult learning is failing to become more attractive. The benchmark, measured by the labour force survey (LFS), is that 15% of adults aged between 25 and 64 should be participating in lifelong learning by 2020. However, the data show participation fell from 9.3% in 2007 to 9% in 2012. Increases to 10.5% in 2013 and 10.7% in 2014, due to a statistical change, are not comparable with previous years and, in any event, remain well below the target.
