Objectifs :

The survey named 'Formation des adultes' in French is collected in the scope of the European Adult education survey (AES) which is defined under EU regulation. It aims to measure participation in education and training according to harmonized concepts at EU level and therefore making comparison between countries possible. The survey also aims to characterize the nature of the training (level, field, length, etc.) and the profile of those who do take part in training activities. Finally, it enables to seize the difficulties when it comes to getting access to training or the reasons that led to not following any training at all. Analyses can be done through several breakdowns thanks to many sociodemographic variables available in the survey (age, sex, level of educational attainment, situation on the labour market, etc.).

Thèmes abordés :

In addition to all the information regarding the participation in education and training and the characteristics of the learning activities undertaken, the survey includes a module (specific to the French survey) to assess people's knowledge and use of both their rights for getting access to training and the ways to access training. It also describes the context in which the training took place (which can be through their work), the balance between training and work as well as the benefits of doing training (current and expected benefits). The survey also includes other types of learning activities that are less structured than education and training but are still undertaken in order to increase their knowledge.
