Swiss Adult Education Survey

Continuing education is becoming increasingly
important in our society. This brochure presents, through a series of indicators, the participation in continuing education by Switzerland’s permanent resident population.

At a glance

The continuing education statistics provide information on the behaviour of the adult population and enterprises with regard to education. They contain facts and figures on participation in different types of educational activities, on their funding as well as on enterprises' commitment to education.
