Impressions are influential. Through more than 40 000 interviews of people aged 25 and over in the European Union, Norway and Iceland, this survey explores people’s impressions about adult learning and continuing vocational education and training (CVET), which are central to enabling adults acquire the knowledge, skills and competences they need to manage changing jobs and lives.

This volume looks at impressions in Member States and across the EU (a second looks at views of different groups in the European adult labour force). The survey brings new insights. People in all Member States value adult learning and CVET and believe that they should be a priority for investment in their country. Low participation in adult learning and CVET is not because of negative impressions. The data are here to explore; its aim is to inform Member State strategies to strengthen adult learning and CVET.
