About the Course:
The report summarizes data collected through the Adult Education for Work-Related Reasons survey fielded in 2003 as part of the National Household Education Surveys. The survey asked a random sample of adults about their work-related educational activities and experiences over the previous 12 months. The survey defined work-related activities in terms of formal and informal learning activities that are done for reasons related to work. Findings from the survey reveal that 40 percent of adults in the nation participated in some type of formal adult education for work-related reasons during a 12-month period in 2002-03. Thirty-three percent participated in work-related courses, 9 percent were in a college degree program, 2 percent were in a vocational degree/diploma program, and 1 percent had an apprenticeship. Fifty-eight percent of adults participated in informal work-related learning activities.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Participation in Adult Education for Work-Related Reasons: 2002-03: Statistical Analysis Report created by Kleiner, B., et al.
