Adult Education and Training in the Netherlands: An Estimate of the Volume and Costs of All Forms of Adult Education.
The report is an attempt to provide a comprehensive survey of organized education/training for adults in the Netherlands. Since the Dutch Government needs to develop more complete information on adult education, figures represented in the report are rough estimates. Vocational education/training is the most important part of adult education in the Netherlands; tables indicate estimated numbers of men and women engaged in: part-time education, apprenticeships, unemployment retraining, employer-funded vocational courses, correspondence education, teacher-training, and Government employee training. Tables, likewise, provide estimates of numbers of people participating in nonvocational education--general education, television courses, and "liberal" adult education. It is estimated that about 12 percent of the total population aged 15 and over is participating in adult education with the majority being in the 15-30 years age group. About a quarter to a third of enrollees in part-time vocational and nonvocational education are women; female participation in the young workers' educational institutes is about 60 percent. Estimates of expenditures for each type of education or training are summarized. Approximately 1 percent of the total 1974 government expenditure is for adult education while 23 percent is allotted for formal full-time education. (EA)
