Insights from a pan-European opinion survey conducted by Cedefop. This survey explores what adults living in the European Union (EU), Iceland and Norway think about adult learning and CVET, given that image and perceptions influence action.

The survey defines adult learning and CVET as any learning activities undertaken by adults (employed or not) with the intention of improving their knowledge or skills. The questionnaire asked about the value of adult learning and CVET in producing desired outcomes and benefits for individuals (such as personal, skill and career development and personal financial situation), society and the economy (such as lower unemployment) and for countries (such as social cohesion).
