Abstract [en]

Swedish adult education can be divided into three major periods. The concept of self-education symbolizes the first period. Study circles and folk high schools provided alternative learning options for adults. The second period can be characterized by a diversified system of publicly organized adult education. Special attention was given to broadening the options for adults with short prior educaiton to study during working hours. In the third period policy decisions were taken to open up for a more flexible organization of adult education. Parliament decided to create so-called renewal funds and 6 billion kronor were used for corporate learning strategies during five years starting from 1986. The next decade will be a crossroads for swedish adult education. To-day the main proposal is to change the legal status of the employment training board from a public agency to a free enterprise in the competence market.
