Lifelong Learning Participation Among Adults in Ireland - EGFSN / SOLAS Snapshot

Language: EN

Posted by Ronnad Baot Murphy

This paper is the second in a series aimed at monitoring Ireland's progress in increasing lifelong learning participation rates amongst adults. The National Skills Strategy highlights the importance of lifelong learning and outlines a number of actions aimed at promoting and supporting participation, particularly amongst people in employment.

Ireland's lifelong learning rate, at 7.2% in quarter 4 2015, is less than half the benchmark set by the EU under its Education & Training framework (ET 2020), which aims to have 15% of adults aged 25-64 engaging in lifelong learning by 2020.
