Design, monitoring and evaluating adult learning classes German Federal Ministry of Education and Research Erasmus+ programme


The professional development of staff in the adult education sector is essential for improving the quality and efficiency of adult learning.

In the adult learning sector, a high number of professionals, including teachers and trainers, come from other sectors and while they maybe experienced in their field of work, they often lack pedagogical and dialectical competences in adult learning.

Addressing this issue, the European Commission developed in 2010 a competence framework for adult learning professionals.

DEMAL project builds on this framework and sets out to develop two key competences of teachers and trainers of adults:

  • Design of adult learning process, and
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of adult learning process.
