The term “Further Education” encompasses education and training that occurs after second-level schooling but is not part of the third-level system. Adults can take part in further education as part of lifelong education. See also module 10
Adult education is not always adequately recognized in terms of visibility, priority policy and resources, despite the political emphasis of lifelong learning in recent years. The gap between the political debate and reality is evident.
Lifelong education is currently expanding and, therefore, we can expect an increasing number of adults, who will be involved in further or continuous education. In addition, there are many people, who are forced to change their occupation due to social conditions.
