Access to learning opportunities and recognition of learning achievements is essential for all citizens for their daily life, working life, and life within the community. Adult Learning Centres have a unique contribution to make in enabling individuals to achieve their personal development goals by identifying and exploiting all available learning opportunities – formal, non-formal and informal. Since the vast majority of what we know and can do is acquired non-formally and informally, the focus of the QUALC is on ALC non-formal/informal facilitation and specifically on the quality of this facilitation.
