Community-Based Lifelong Learning and Adult Education: Role of Community Learning Centres as Facilitators of Lifelong Learning

.

To assist policy-makers and CLC managers in transforming the role of community learning centre (CLC), as a key platform to provide vital knowledge and essential skills to marginalized learners, this booklet lays the foundation of the CLC frameworks and addresses the key areas for transforming CLCs. Taking into account successful examples and experiences from different countries in the Asia-Pacific, multiple aspects of the cross-cutting elements in the functions of the CLC – including the effective use of ICT, recognition, validation and accreditation, migration, sustainability, financing strategies, inter-sectoral approaches and decentralization – were specifically discussed.

This sequential booklet was developed as part of the publication “Community-Based Lifelong Learning and Adult Education: Situations of Community Learning Centres in 7 Asian Countries”. As one of the main outputs of UNESCO Bangkok’s project “Transforming Education and Training Systems to Create Lifelong Learning Societies in the Asia-Pacific” supported by the Japanese-Funds-in-Trust, the contents were synthesized based on the comprehensive education sector review on lifelong learning in selected Asian countries, relevant researches and technical inputs of the national experts provided during the two consultation meetings held in Bangkok, Thailand.
