Abstract

In this article, we examine the literature on adult education and training focusing on the acquisition of skills that are job related, but where learning is a separate activity from regular job activities. We provide an overview of the methods commonly used to evaluate the outcomes of adult education and training, mainly the effect on earnings and employment, and a summary of the results of this literature. We distinguish between government-sponsored and private-sector training as they usually differ in the goal of the training, the type of subject taking training, and the skills they acquire when training.
