CAPACITY BUILDING AND TRAINING PROGRAMMES FOR ICAE MEMBERS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS
The general objective of this programme is to support ICAE members and other stakeholders in the development of capacities for advocacy and to generate debates on new trends and experiences of Youth and Adult Education.
ICAE Academy of Lifelong Learning Advocacy (IALLA)
The ICAE Academy of Lifelong Learning Advocacy (IALLA) is an international residential course held for the first time in 2004, in Norway. Since then, a total of seven editions have taken place in Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Arab Region; in 2012 the first advanced, second stage IALLA was held. Until now, there are 189 IALLA graduates from 68 different countries.
For the last 7 years and in a regular basis, ICAE has run virtual seminars on adult education and development and Education as a Human Right. Our experience shows this is a very applicable tool to enhance the discussion and to have very different perspectives from all over the world and from all kind of institutions at a very low cost. It is also an effective capacity building tool to bridge gaps, to disseminate best practices and to connect the global with the regional and local spheres.
These seminars take place via e-mail through a moderated list. That is the simplest and most successful way to reach people from all regions, even those who have more difficulties with their internet connection. The last editions have reached more than 1.000 participants from all over the world.
