|Abstract: ||The History of Education and Training of Adults in Alentejo / Portugal, is not
recent. We can go back to the 70's, even before the Revolution of April 25, 1974. At the
time, approximately 30% of the Portuguese population could neither read nor write.
After 1974 the new political regime created a government office (Directorate General of
Permanent Education / DGEP) with the responsibility of defining and implementing
actions of adult education. Some universities, at the time, understood the importance of
this area and followed this movement: as was the case with the University of Évora and
the University of Minho. In Alentejo the University of Évora, imbued by the role of
community service, decided in 1979, to promote the Awareness and Start Adult
Education and Training Course, organized in the Division of Education and Pedagogy.
At the time, the Évora's Academy Adult Education Project was coordinated by Prof.
Manuel Ferreira Patrício. The main objective of this project, was to contribute to the
implementation of measures in the area of literacy and basic education of adults,
following what was defined in the law 3/79 of January 10, statute that gave the
government of this time the responsibility of implementing the National Plan for
Literacy and Base Education of Adults.|
