an advisory, consultative, participation and cooperation body between the different public administrations and the most representative economic and social agents, involved in the Education and Permanent Training of Adult People, among which are the sectors linked to these studies, including town councils, island councils and the management teams of the Education Centers of Adult Persons (CEPA) of the Canary Islands. This will be supported by the Territorial Commissions for Education and Permanent Training of Adults (article 16).

It is expected that the aforementioned Order of constitution of this body will be published in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC) in the coming days, to subsequently proceed to the call of the members of this Commission.
