CPRN outlines recommendations for adult learning

November 19, 2007

The Canadian Policy Research Networks recently released their report on adult learning entitled “Towards an Effective Adult Learning System.”  The vision for a more accessible and effective adult learning system was the result of regional roundtable discussions with a number of stakeholders, including business, labour, government, and educational institutions.  Among the highlights, the report recommends a public policy framework that acknowledges the “right to learn”, financial support, employer incentives, investment in basic skills training, and a coordinated approach to respond to adult learners’ needs.
