Die wba ist eine zentrale Säule der Professionalisierung der österreichischen Erwachsenenbildung. Die maßgeschneiderten Validierungsverfahren bieten Akteurinnen und Akteuren aus der Praxislandschaft die Möglichkeit, sich als Erwachsenenbildner:in zertifizieren und diplomieren zu lassen, wodurch ein hochrelevanter Weg der individuellen Professionalisierung geebnet wird. Darüber hinaus leisten die Qualifikationsprofile der wba einen maßgeblichen Beitrag zur fortlaufenden Schärfung der Berufsbilder und Tätigkeitsprofile in der Erwachsenenbildung.
