Lifelong learning is now essential

The EU rate of investment in adult skills is similar to international peers, while varying considerably across Member States, with the share of those in employment and participating in education or training in some cases more than double than in others.

In an economy that is rapidly changing (ageing, digitisation) there is a constant need for adults to keep reinvesting in skills through lifelong learning. This is as true for those in employment as it is for those who are unemployed or inactive.
