“ALL you can LEARN” (AUCL) is a tool/methodology developed by CESIE in the frame of the H2020 RAISD project that proposes a bottom-up and participatory approach in education, shifting from INDUCED approach training offer to a SELECTIVE one, allowing adult learners to increase their decision-making capacity by having direct influence over their learning path’s content and modalities according to a set of individual variables (interests and aspirations, level of studies and previously attended programmes, logistics and time availability, etc.).
It features 100 Learning Objectives distributed over 7 knowledge areas for inclusion:
- active citizenship and democracy,
- health and wellbeing,
- life skills,
- social cohesion,
- equity and equality,
- employment and work,
- inclusive societies and cultures.
It was tested with the target in the period of 6 months in Palermo.
The “ALL you can LEARN” training experience was implemented over 16 sessions/40 hours in summer 2021, covering orientation sessions (understanding learning objectives to be achieved); actual face-to-face training sessions, based on twenty learning objectives selected by each participant; local study visits as an opportunity for debate, exchange and mutual learning and final evaluation and capitalization sessions.

MESO-Level EFFECTS through https://allyoucanlearn.cesie.org/teach
[FDP/HVG Relief, support and community centres; CAS centres]
- Concreter efficiency of local support Networks;
- Monitoring “users’” situations and conditions, ability to report or address HVG to associations, stakeholders and local authorities that offer specific and specialised services.
[Professional Educators: Schools, Training centres, teachers, trainers, cultural mediators, volunteers]
- Enhanced Quality of staff and offered services;
- Optimized efforts in identifying trainees’ learning needs;
- Avoided dispersion of resources, info and data (learners’ profiling and mapping);
- Achieved flexibility in training provision methods: update and adapt traditionally excessive strictness of the paths and hours of commitment.
[Quintuple Helix Stakeholders, ARU and further Observatory]
- Improved alignment to real HVG learning needs when designing future training opportunities and programmes;
- Fostered comprehensive interdisciplinary perspective of territorial Networking and Cooperation procedures;
- Ensured fair accessibility to territorial inclusion-service environment.
MACRO-Level EFFECTS https://allyoucanlearn.cesie.org
[Authorities and institutions; policy makers]

- Fostered inclusion and responsiveness in hosting communities.
The “ALL you can LEARN” Platform
The bilingual online selection tool (Italian and English) represents the digital “learning menu” that supports the testing of the TAIS SELECTIVE approach: trainees choose their learning path; digital users can cross select between different areas of knowledge/challenges to be achieved during the overall “ALL you can LEARN” training experience. Through a group code, participants access the online tool and are approached ‘just’ as adult learners with no indication of names or titles to their vulnerabilities.
“Create your Training Menu by choosing the learning objectives you want to achieve, demonstrating that adult education can play a key role, through its transformative possibilities and the power of the joy of learning. Everyone should have the right and the opportunity to access the adult education system – it is a common and public good and it transforms lives and societies to be more inclusive!”
