Netherlands: 1 in 5 adults involved in lifelong learning

In 2017, over 1.7 million people in the Netherlands between the ages of 25 and 65 years participated in a form of adult learning.
That’s because the Dutch government supports ‘lifelong learning’, enabling adults – whether in work or not – to acquire sufficient skills and knowledge to be or remain active in the labour market for the long term. Compared to other EU countries, relatively many adults in the Netherlands participate in learning: over 19 percent in 2017. Only in the Scandinavian countries, this share is even higher. In Sweden, more than three in ten adults engage in education or training, followed by Finland and Denmark. The Netherlands and France complete the top five of countries. Here’s a chart showing comparison:

Graduation should be scrapped in ‘lifelong learning revolution”

Ministers are being urged to scrap the current school leaving age of 16 and instead bring in a requirement that young people stay in learning, in either the classroom or the workplace, until they are 18.

As part of what it termed a “revolution in lifelong learning”, IPPR Scotland called for the existing school leaving age to be replaced with “a new skills participation age of 18”.

In addition, it recommended everyone under the age of 21 should be involved in learning new skills in some way by 2025, and the Scottish Government introduce a new target of having 100,000 workers over the age of 25 involved in the skills system by then.
