Not everyone has equal access to adult education – a key factor that is affecting participation rates across Europe.
The AEMA Network, consisting of 12 organisations from 11 European countries, aims to change this, by developing a shared network and quality framework on accessibility issues in adult education provision. The network, funded with support from the Grundtvig programme of the European Commission, will reach out to people with disabilities, accessibility experts, disability organisations, Governmental organisations, funding bodies and Adult Education providers, with the overall aim of increasing the accessibility, participation, transparency and quality of Adult Education in Europe. The network will provide further visibility to accessibility practices by awarding Accessibility Quality Badges for Adult Education Providers and Accessibility Competency Badges for experts on Accessibility.
