Policy briefs

A list of policy briefs produced by the consortium

  • ENLIVEN policy brief No. 1 ─ Barriers to adult participation in lifelong learning in a European policy context
    • Authors:
      Sofie Cabus (Belgium team), Petya Ilieva-Trichkova (Bulgarian team), Miroslav Štefánik (Slovakian team)
    • Published date: January 2019
    • Abstract:
      This is the first of two ENLIVEN Policy Briefs exploring the links between “system characteristics” (the relatively fixed features that derive from the institutions that structure particular societies) and adults’ participation in lifelong learning. They are based on two analytical reports focussed on disadvantaged social groups. This Policy Brief explores the barriers to lifelong learning participation: what hinders or prevents disadvantaged adult workers from learning.
  • ENLIVEN policy brief No. 2 ─ Good access to adult education and training accelerates economic growth
    • Author: Sofie Cabus (Belgium team)
    • Published date: January 2019
    • Abstract:
      This is the second of two ENLIVEN Policy Briefs which explore the connections between ‘system characteristics’ – relatively fixed features that derive from the institutions that structure particular societies – and adults’ participation in lifelong learning. They are based on two analytical reports we have prepared on these associations, focussing particularly on disadvantaged social groups. This Policy Brief examines the consequences for the economy of barriers to participation in lifelong learning.
  • ENLIVEN policy brief No. 3 ─ Decision support for policy makers: Building an intelligent system with coherent knowledge of diverse lifelong learning interventions in EU countries
    • Authors: Rong Qu and Claire Palmer (England team)
    • Published date: September 2018
    • Abstract:
      This policy brief reports research conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of establishing an intelligent decision support system (IDSS) on interventions to support policy making for education and training for young adults in Europe. Although there is rich practical knowledge of what makes educational interventions for these young people successful, and the related literature is extensive, documentation is often scattered and inconsistent in form. Much of it also lacks sufficient detail to support informed decision-making. In this Policy Brief, we present novel research spanning two disciplines (education and computer science) – areas which seldom interact.
