High adult learning participation in Norway

In the past year, 42 percent of Norwegians aged 15-66 years participated in non-formal education and training. This training is commonly job-related, and participation is far higher among employed than non-employed, as the employer often is the training provider. Individuals with tertiary educational attainment and people in academic professions or management positions have a higher participation rate than other groups.

Employed women participate largely than employed men, both in the age group 25-34 years and 35 years and above. Approximately nine percent of employed adults over 25 years (i.e. 200 000 people) studied in the formal education system in the last 12 months. 

The newly published report Lifelong Learning 2008-2015 presents analyses and descriptive statistics from the Learning Conditions Monitor (Lærevilkårsmonitoren), a supplementary survey to the Labour Force Survey (LFS) running in the first quarter each year. The purpose of the LC Monitor is to investigate factors that influence adult learning opportunities. The results described in this report are from the period of 2008 to 2015.

The survey has a net sample of about 12 000 respondents aged 15 to 66 years, and questions include a mapping of respondents’ participation in formal education and non-formal education and training in the past 12 months.

Almost seven out of ten persons employed have work requiring them to continuously learn new things, and almost eight out of ten say they have good learning opportunities in their job. Around three out of five employees face high demands to learn new things in their daily work combined with good opportunities for such learning. This combination of high learning requirements and good learning opportunities can be described as learning-intensive work.

Diskussjoni ta’ EPALE: Il-forniment ta’ tagħlim ta’ ħiliet bażiċi

Il-ħiliet bażiċi huma trasversali. Dawn mhumiex rilevanti biss għall-politika edukattiva, iżda huma rilevanti wkoll għall-politiki tal-impjiegi, tas-saħħa, soċjali u ambjentali. Il-bini ta’ miżuri ta’ politika koeżivi li jappoġġjaw lill-persuni bi ħtiġijiet bażiċi ta’ ħiliet huwa meħtieġ mhux biss biex il-Perkorsi ta’ Titjib tal-Ħiliet ikunu suċċess, iżda wkoll biex jgħinu fil-bini ta’ soċjetajiet aktar reżiljenti u inklużivi. Id-diskussjoni online se ssir f’din il-paġna fis-16/17 ta’ Settembru bejn l-10:00 u s-16:00 CET u se tkun immoderata mill-Koordinaturi Tematiċi ta’ EPALE tal-EBSN
