    I. Introduction

    In the last decade, a number of changes have occurred in adult education. Adult learning has be-come one of the important components of lifelong learning. The 2006 European Communication on Adult learning It is never too late to learn emphasises the key role of adult learning in developing citizen-ship and competences. The general objective of the Action plan on adult learning It is always a good time to learn (2007) is the implementation of the five key messages in the commu-nication It is never too late to learn: (1) to remove barriers to participation; (2) to increase the quality and efficiency of the adult education; (3) to speed up the process of assessment of skills and competences and their validation and recognition; (4) to ensure sufficient in-vestment; and (5) to efficiently moni-tor the adult education sector. One of the key elements in the imple-mentation of the Action plan on adult learning is the professional development of adult educators, trainers, teachers, as they are the leading agents of change. This guidebook will support adult educators in their efforts of remov-ing barriers to participation and of increasing the quality of adult education by better motivating adults for learning.

    1.1 Background and objectives of the CreMoLe project

    In the 21st century, individuals should be able to cope with constant changes. Our rapidly chang-ing world causes a large share of its population to be forced into new and challenging working environments, which call for new skills and attitudes. In many European countries, teaching has been geared towards preparing individuals to become lifelong learners by helping them devel-

    op learning skills as early as in primary school. Some EU member states edu-cational systems are more advanced in implementing an engaging style of teaching and in supporting the devel-opment of learning skills, including in the case of adult education, while other systems lag far behind.
