About Us

The Association of Adult Education Providers was established by 42 membership organizations in 1992, and since then it has grown to nearly 160 members, most of whom were enterprises, as well as schools, universities and non-profit organizations. It is the largest national adult education organization, and also performs a leading role in advocacy in the field of education.

The Association provides constant support in everyday activities for adult educators and adult education institutes, also ensures the continuous quality improvement of professional work, and the inevitable development of training methods and tools. Besides, the renowned members have been advocating for quality adult education for many years now.

Anyone who shares the same attitude as the members themselves towards adult education can join the Association.

Mission Statement
