A career in adult education can be a rewarding and fulfilling one. However, there is a common perception that getting ACTA means you will be able to cross successfully into the adult education landscape, and that assignments will be waiting for you. In reality, this is not how the industry works. Being an adult educator (AE) is bigger than just getting an ACTA qualification.
If you have further questions after taking the self-assessment, and would like to contact a real-life freelance AE for advice, you can write in to IAL’s AE career advisory service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note however that this is an advisory service and does not provide assignment-matching opportunities at IAL or elsewhere.
