Participation in informal (continuing) education


This indicator established the percentage of the population that took part in an informal continuing education course in the 12 months prior to interview. Informal education includes activities taking place in a student-teacher context but which are not provided by the formal education system. These can be courses, conferences, seminars or private courses for example.

The rate is calculated as follows: Persons taking part in a continuing education course / Total persons
