Adult Learning

The proportion of people aged 16 to 69 who are no longer in continuous full-time education but participated in some type of adult learning (taught or non-taught) in the last year was estimated to be 67.4% in 2005.

In 2005, the Shetland Islands had the highest adult learning proportion (estimated at 80.7%) and North Lanarkshire had the lowest adult learning proportion (estimated at 54.5%).

In 2005, the proportion of people living in the 15% most deprived areas who participated in adult learning in the last year was estimated to be 46.7%, much lower than that for the rest of Scotland at 70.8%.
