Adult participation in education 2016


Six out of ten employed persons aged 25–64 took part in staff training during a twelve-month period between 2015 and 2016. Staff training was most common among highly educated persons, and thereby also in occupational groups that require university studies. Three out of four participants consider that the staff training activity was useful to a large or fairly large extent within 12 months.
