Community-Based Lifelong Learning and Adult Education: Situations of Community Learning Centres in 7 Asian Countries

.

“Within the framework of the project “Transforming Education and Training Systems to Create Lifelong Learning Societies in the Asia-Pacific” supported by the Japan-Funds-in-Trust, this publication is to explore how the concept of lifelong learning has been implemented in seven selected Asia-Pacific countries based on comprehensive education sector reviews, relevant documents and data from the countries with the answers to the following two major questions: (1) How national policies and systems are developed to enhance lifelong learning and what skills and competencies are emphasised in national education policies, plans and practices?, and (2) How different types of educational institutions are mobilised to prepare different groups of learners with the skills and competencies required for a knowledge-based society? 

The publication focuses on the role of CLCs to investigate how the concept of lifelong learning is being implemented at community level in a country, including recommendations and policy suggestions for developing national strategies for lifelong learning towards lifelong learning society. The sequential booklets on the Role of CLCs as Facilitators of Lifelong Learning and the Adult Skills and Competencies for Lifelong Learning are also developed as part of this publication.”
