Memorandum (March, 1971) on Proposed Training Course in "Community Adult Education."
The rationale for a diploma course in Community Adult Education is discussed, based on adult education work pioneered by the Workers' Educational Association, in association with the Liverpool Educational Priority Area Project. The need for an effective training program has become more apparent as increasing numbers of part-time tutors are involved in the project. Their continuing dependence on the tutor/organizer's advice and assistance in matters of curriculum, method, and approach illustrate the need for a new type of training for professionals working in this field. The proposed course would involve practical work in the Liverpool Project, as well as the following academic subjects: (1) theory and practice of community development, (2) market research and the social services, (3) sociology, (4) popular culture, (5) learning through doing theory and techniques, (6) sociology of education, and (7) philosophy of education.
