Why age is just a number when it comes to adult education

Taking an adult education course can be the gateway to a new career or that all-important promotion. No matter what field you’re in, learning new skills is the key to branching out and moving forwards. However, since 2010, the number of adult learners or mature students has plummeted by nearly 4 million1. And unfortunately, there seems to be an increasing drop off in adult learners past the age of 40. For example, in the UK just over a half of mature students are aged between 21 and 24, 38% between 25 and 39, and just 10% are over 40 when they commence an adult education course2. So, it’s clear that once we reach a certain age, the less likely we will take part in adult education. The question is, why? We’re here to help you realise that age is just a number when it comes to adult education.
