Institutions of Life Learning in Opole Region
Languages of publication
It is obvious that life learning makes one of the basic factors of regional development, secures improvement of the quality of human capital in the region, bettering of the situation on the job market, results in a decrease in the unemployment rate and stopping of the 'fleeing' human capital, as well as improves the position of Opole Region on the national level, in comparison with other regions in the country. In the light of new legal regulations which restrict the aid on the side of employers extended to employees pursuing education and in the situation of the present 'economic crisis', mere 'training to do work', which is a frequent practice today, will expand, limiting the possibilities of employees' participation in formal structures of external life learning. In their verbal declarations, entrepreneurs acknowledge the significance of permanent education, still the activities they undertake within this sphere are of a rather limited character. In Opole Region, there occur additional limitations relating to the demographic and economic development of the region. Nevertheless, these negative trends must be counteracted in a decisive way. Participation in formalized forms of life learning does not exhaust human activity in this respect. Self-education cannot be ignored as an individual activity that makes it possible to acquire plenty of vital professional competences. It is more and more often postulated today to facilitate certification and formal confirmation of the acquired skills.
