To provide a scientific basis for developing a European Handbook for adult educators engaged in the field of low literacy (functional illiteracy), the partners of the LearnersMot project have conducted national surveys regarding education of low educated and low skilled adults in their countries. The results of the national surveys were then compared and interpreted in a European compiled report.
The goals of the national surveys were as follows:
The EU compiled report is based on the results of the national research studies made by partners and the questionnaire applied in Cyprus, Italy, Slovenia, and Spain. The respondents were adult educators from various adult educational organisations or organisations dealing with social inclusion where adult education is an additional, though crucial activity.
The results contained in the EU compiled report will serve adult educators, providers of adult education, social workers, specialists in the field of social inclusion, experts dealing with social marginalization and characteristics of socially marginalized groups, experts in the field of dyslexia, employers, personal managers etc.
