Liberal adult education
In Finland, liberal adult education is provided by adult education centres, folk high schools, sports institutes, summer universities and study centres. Their activities are evaluated with themed and system evaluations. The evaluations specifically focus on the duty and role of liberal adult education in the implementation of adult education and their ability to promote equality and accessibility.
The functioning of the steering system of adult education centres is also evaluated. The evaluations also focus on the educational institute structure and network of liberal adult education and the development of the service capabilities, the ability to perform statutory responsibilities as well as the volume of activities and target groups.
