WELCOME TO THE SITE

The ESREA Research Network on Adult Educators, Trainers and their Professional Development (ReNAdET) is a recently established network, the general scope of which is to provide input on how to improve the conditions needed for the personal and professional development of adult educators and trainers, enhancing the attractiveness of their profession and therefore strengthening the idea of quality in adult education in Europe. This is to be achieved by stipulating some insight into key issues and challenges related to the adult educator and related staff, and by highlighting essential areas of action, current trends, good practices, initiatives and relevant policies. On these grounds the aim of the network is threefold:

  • To bring forward the experience from all around Europe, on issues pertaining to the multiple roles, practices and settings in which adult educators and related staff act and grow.
  • To report on current European projects and stimulate research in this area.
  • To explore the ways in which policies develop and analyse their possible impact.
A variety of issues  are addressed within the network such as initial education and training of adult educators and related staff; access, recruitment and career paths for adult educators & trainers; ageing and gendering of the adult educator; professionalisation  and attractiveness of their profession, employment situation, working environments and working conditions; continuing and in-service education and training for adult educators & assessment of their role; duties, roles and identities for adult educators and related staff; methods and qualities of practice, reflectivity and reflective practice; adult learner/participant - adult educator interaction & issues of power and authority; trade unionism, collaboration and networking among adult educators and related staff; policy making and its impact on adult educators' roles and practices.
