Adult education

As an independent part of the overall education system, adult education should be open to all people, regardless of their gender and age, education, social or professional status, political or ideological orientation and nationality. The adult education institutions offer in particular educational measures for vocational qualification, preparation for school leaving certificates, history, politics, psychology, philosophy, art, regional and local history, natural sciences, technology, artistic and craft design, languages, home economics and health education.

Adult learning provides an opportunity to acquire or increase knowledge and skills through the voluntary resumption of organised learning. It is intended to promote the independence of judgment, stimulate intellectual debate and help to cope with life problems. Adult education is intended to promote the willingness of individuals to engage in lifelong learning, contribute to equal opportunities and help to reduce educational deficits.
