Life long learning is lucrative
Friday, December 14, 2007/
Life long learning is becoming entrenched in our culture, with nearly 30% of Australia’s adults undertaking some type of study in the last four years, according to a new report by the University of Melbourne. And women in the 25-to-54-year-old bracket were doing more training than men.
The number of adults in education was extraordinary, says researcher Bruce Headey, who studied data from the Household Income and Labor Dynamics in Australia survey.
He says that Australians already are heeding the message about life-long learning. And it is paying off with those participating in learning receiving an increase in their salaries compared to those who did not.
The report also found that nearly 40% of women aged 25-to-34 were undertaking formal education.
