EU Conference – Wider Benefits of Learning: Why and How to Measure them? – 25 March 2021

The Lifelong Learning Platform is pleased to invite you to a 1h30 online conference to share solutions on how can adult education providers better monitor and measure the progress of disadvantaged learners.

Date: 25 March 2021 – 11:00-12:30pm CET (online)


This conference is the final event of the Tampada project, a European project coordinated by Derbyshire County Council (UK) which ran for 30 months between 2018 and 2021 and involved five partner organisations from five EU countries (UK, GR, SI, SE, BE). The scope of the conference is to bring together policy makers, representatives of the adult education sector and of civil society and researchers on wider benefits of education and on the use of data in education at EU level. The event will consist of a presentation of the Tampada project results, featuring a panel of experts and interaction with the audience.


As a result of a field research, the project partners published two key publications – a Toolkit and a Manual – that aim at supporting adult education providers in measuring learners’ lifelong and lifewide progress. The two publications include guidelines to support organisations with measuring the ‘wider benefits of learning’ – in terms of learners’ well-being (eg self-confidence, health), social outcomes (eg network, social inclusion) and well-being, among others.

Based on these findings, partners have created a multilingual digital tool that teachers and educators can fill in to measure learners’ progress and compare the results across classes, schools, and countries. This tool was piloted and tested from September 2020 to January 2021 in 4 countries (Greece, UK, Sweden, and Slovenia) and at the event, there will be a presentation on how the digital tool works.

Following the presentation of these results, EU level policy recommendations issued from the project findings will be the basis of a panel discussion gathering three panelists representing the EU institutions and other key stakeholders. The panelists will discuss what is happening at EU level, between the graduate tracking system initiative,  the digitalisation in the European Education Area and the challenge of data monitoring and collection.

The event will include time for interaction and discussion between speakers and the audience.
