Latvian Adult Education Association (in Latvian – Latvijas Pieaugušo izgl?t?bas apvien?ba), LAEA, is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation, which unites adult education providers in Latvia – both individuals and organisations. LAEA was founded on December 14, 1993 with support from Latvia’s Ministry of Education and Science and Institute for International Cooperation of the German Adult Education Association.
The highest decision making body of LAEA is the General Assembly of its members. The General Assembly elects the Board, the Chairperson of the Association, who is also in charge of duties of chairing the Board, and the Audit Committee, for a two-year term. The Board manages activities of the Association in between general meetings.
LAEA has been a member organisation of the European Association for the Education of Adults (EAEA) since 1995, joining the European Prison Education Association and European Adult Education Research Association (ESREA) in 1997. LAEA is a member of Latvian Platform of Development Education and Civic Aliance- Latvia.
The Latvian Adult Education Association (Latvia/project management) with the other seven partner organizations, namely, Akademia Vzdelavania (Slovakia), Arbeit und Leben DGB/VHS Hamburg (Germany), CREA University of Barcelona (Spain), IFAD Montpellier (France), and VUC Nordjylland (Denmark), as well as the Deutsche Institut für Erwachsenenbildung (DIE/evaluation and accompanying research) and the European Association for Education of Adults (EAEA/distribution of project results) studied the quality management systems for adult educational institutions in the participating European countries and then analyses and compared the respective experiences.
The present book “Managing Quality of Adult Education in Europe” is the handbook that presents the approach of the “Managing Quality” model, including its structure and contents. With its work sheets, this book also covers the central instrument for the purpose of initiating and implementing quality development processes.
Although the book was kept concise intentionally, it was designed to be the central working aid in order to perform the various steps within the framework of quality development.
