Curriculum globALE will become an UNESCO recommended tool for training of adult educators

DVV International and the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) as well as the German Institute for Adult Education (DIE) and the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) join forces in further developing the existing Curriculum globALE as a recommended tool for the pre-service and in-service training of adult educators.

Originally developed by DVV International and DIE, Curriculum globALE is a cross-cultural core curriculum for the training of adult educators worldwide. In five modules, it describes the relevant skills needed to lead successful courses and provides guidance on their practical implementation. It aims to enhance the professionalisation of adult educators working in different contexts by providing a common competence standard; support adult education providers in the design and implementation of train-the-trainer programmes; and foster knowledge exchange and mutual understanding between adult educators across countries and regions.

Curriculum GlobALE benefits institutions providing train-the-trainer programmes and individuals wishing to teach in adult education. A revised version of the curriculum will be provided to UNESCO Member States in early 2021.

More information on the Curriculum globALE can be found here.
