Adult education is the teaching, educating, and training of adults. It is not the same as vocational education, which is mostly for improving skills for a specific workplace or job. It is a formal type of education that can be provided through the workplace, extension schools, schools of continuing education, community colleges, and other adult education centers.
The range of adult education opportunities varies from the completion of general education to learning English as a Second Language. Courses usually provide one-to-one teaching, plus classes for small groups.
Education is a continuous process and especially useful in today's society where new skills are required as technology advances. Often courses are run in the evenings or weekends, so that those wishing to learn do not have to take time off work. Coursework can be completed at any time, allowing you to fit it in between the many demands on your time.
The quality of adult education can vary, so finding an effective course is important. Many adult educators are not properly trained for their roles, and especially lack the skills required to cope with adult learning issues.
