23 SES 09 C, European Lifelong Learning in Post-Soviet Societies: Case of Russia and the Baltics
The aim of the paper is to provide an in-depth analysis of participation in non-formal learning in different European Union member states. We seek to extend the analysis of the training gap by pursuing the distinction between the supply and the demand for skills. Although training supply and demand has been an issue in the training gap literature, only few studies have attempted to separate them. We propose to examine supply and demand by using a model in which further education and training is dependent on the match between existing educational qualifications and the educational requirements of jobs. Also characteristics of institutional setting are included in the analysis. We concentrate on the following research questions: • How does the match between existing educational qualifications and the occupational structure affect the participation in non-formal learning and the training gap between low-skilled blue collar workers and high-skilled white collar workers? • Whether or not the way existing educational qualifications and occupational structure shape the opportunities for lifelong learning differs between new European Union member states versus EU15 states? We use data of Adult Education Survey 2007 about participation in non-formal learning in different EU countries. Target population was 25-64 year olds.
