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 68.3% in 2006.

In 2006, Edinburgh City had the highest adult learning proportion (estimated at 79.5%) and Glasgow City had the lowest adult learning proportion (estimated at 57.8%).

In 2006, the proportion of people living in the 15% most deprived areas who participated in adult learning in the last year was estimated to be 49.8%, much lower than that for the rest of Scotland at 71.4%.
