Weiterbildungsbeteiligung in Deutschland



"The topic of further education is getting more and more attention in political discussions. Also, rising participation rates show that further education becomes more important for the individuals. Due to both of these developments, several surveys include questions regarding further education. The Adult Cohort of the National Educational Panel Study (Stage 8 of the NEPS) does so in a very comprehensive manner. This article presents results from the first five panel waves concerning the participation in further education and highlights some of the main advantages of the data for further education research, e.g. the possibility to survey the participation in formal further education over the whole life course as well as the observation of non-formal or informal further education for a period of several years."
