Education should not be limited only to formal school education but individuals should always find ways and means to increase their knowledge and improve their skills. The rapid flow of knowledge and social change, the discovery of new techniques and innovations, etc call for continuous learning. Individuals who missed formal education looked to different means and ways to substitute their educations through the continuing education. Therefore, the need for continued education becomes an issue to be tackled from different point of views. This paper attempts to look at the need for adult and continuing education in the leadership, to review its nature and practice, the purposes, problems and evaluations. For this purpose we will look at the Kuwait University Center for Communing Education and Community Service as a model in leadership for adult and continuing education.
