The reasons for education among adults and the way the expense of each course is to be shared are illustrated in the given charts.

As per the survey result, most adults study because of their interest and this accounts for about 40%. Not far behind, a considerable proportion pursues their education for gaining qualifications (38%). When around 22% think it would help their current job, the rate of those who think it enhances their opportunities for promotion is 2% less. The same proportion of adults enjoys studying (20%). Aspiring changes in their current job is the force behind adult education for about 12%. Only 9% of the adults are seen involved in studies to meet new people.

As per the pie chart, the major share of each course is to be spent by the government, and this accounts for two- fifth of the total share. The employer’s share in meeting this expense accounts for just over a third (35%), whereas a quarter of the total is to be shared by the individual himself.

Overall it is clear that though there are diverse reasons for adult education, the cost of each course should be shared almost equally.
