Summary/Abstract: Adult education performs important functions related to the implementation of the modern philosophies of lifelong learning and life-wide learning. This requires establishing a particular type of educational management – the management of adult education and training of specific managers – those responsible at different levels for managing the sector, the institutions and the services for adult education – known collectively as “adult education managers.” To perform successfully their functions related to the management of the system (sector) of adult education and of the institutions for formal and non-formal education, which offer educational services for adults and carry out the process of adult education, these managers need to acquire and develop a specific competency (or a set of competencies) and a specific managerial culture. The author presents arguments supporting the need for training such managers. The parameters of their managerial culture are outlined in terms of its content: managerial competence, managerial values, managerial beliefs and convictions as well as managerial behavior. A special emphasis is placed on the managerial competence of adult education managers regarded as the sum of competencies related to the management of the organization and educational activities in general (“production management”), human resource management, and operations management (the set of specific activities of all units and all people employed directly or providing and facilitating the process of adult learning and the functioning of the institutions offering it).
