Learning – Throughout Life

European Lifelong Learning Indicators (ELLI)

This is a monitoring instrument to shed more light on lifelong learning and training and facilitate comparisons.
The index identifies four dimensions of learning in the learning environment of each individual:

School-based learning
How do people learn in educational institutions? The dimension of school-based learning provides information about how learning develops among children and young people in schools, the availability of a university education, and the educational level of young people and employed individuals in the selected region.

Vocational learning
How do people learn for, and in, their occupations? The dimension of vocational learning provides information about opportunities for young people to complete qualified training and about the importance attached to further vocational training and on-the-job learning in the selected region.

Social learning
How do people learn in, and for, their interactions with others? The dimension of social learning provides information about the ways in which people in a region take advantage of opportunities for social learning, and the extent to which they do so. Indices of social engagement, political participation and the value attached to the social integration of young people shed light on this multifaceted aspect of lifelong learning.

Personal learning
How do people learn to develop personally? The dimension of personal learning provides information about opportunities for personal development and self-fulfillment that are available to, and used by, people in a region – through personal development courses, sports, cultural learning and media-based self-directed learning.
