Description of the methods of implementation and any recommendations

The European Peer Review methodology is a Quality Assurance approach, based on the contribution of adult education professionals in equal standing (Peers) to each other, based on a combination of self and external evaluation, so to support Adult Education providers in constantly improving their provision, through Peers’ analysis and review. It is based on a set of given quality criteria and indicators.

Being a voluntary Quality Assurance approach, directly involving practitioners from the field, this methodology has already proven to be effective in supporting expected educational changes and development.

Through peer reviewing adult education provision and the related support services (i.e.: guidance, validation of non-formal and informal learning, reconciliation between family duties and learning and employment obligations), designed and implemented by the different National Adult Education networks, the involved Peers have the opportunity to suggest and test innovative and on-purpose solutions and approaches aimed at tackling these main challenges.
