Adult and Continuing Education in France
The DIE publication series "Country Reports on Continuing Education" presents an outline of adult and continuing education in France. Author Silke Schreiber-Barsch provides a good overview of the continuing education system in our neighbouring country. She combines data, information and country-specific characteristics on key issues such as institutions, financing, professionalization, and participation in lifelong learning. Special features such as the French fund system and the statutory process for the assessment and validation of competences is included systematically. Historical and social references facilitate a differentiated view on current debates and controversially discussed traditions.
