Management Staff Working in Adult Education and Training

The Minister of Education, Science and Culture, governs the affairs of adult education and issued in 2010 the Adult Education Act.

Regional Educational Centres around the country are run by the local municipalities, labour and trade unions, all of which are represented in the board of the Centres. Management staff is recruited by the board based on an open recruitment procedure (application/interviews).

Accreditation of education providers to provide adult education is to be provided by the Minister of education, science and culture. The prerequisites for accreditation are the fulfilment of the following:

a. the teaching and learning facilities used;

b. the organisation and supervision of the studies;

c. the curriculum guides or course descriptions;

d. the competences of those providing adult education as measured by their knowledge and experience;

e. financial and insurance matters; and f. the existence of a quality assurance system focused on adult education.
