Participation in adult education opportunities: Evidence from PIAAC and policy trends in selected countries

  • Author(s): Desjardins, R

Abstract

This paper examines cross-country patterns of participation in adult education opportunities using comparative data made available by the OECD Survey of Adult Skills. Patterns are considered in relation to some of the mechanisms that drive unequal chances to participate, and some of the policy issues that surround the provision, governance and financing of different types of adult learning, as well as recent policy developments relevant to adult education in selected countries.
