Lifelong Learning In Croatia: Challenges And Perspectives


  • Zoran Pandza


In the time of rapid economic, social and political changes, the lifelong learning (LLL) is becoming a a necessity and an essential element of any strategy striving for both the survival and profitability of business, industry as well as the entire nation in the challenging time of the twenty-first century. The concept of lifelong learning clearly implies that, while education may formally start during a period of activity in a compulsory school setting, it will clearly extend far beyond that, continued, extended and developed by experience and activity in a variety of settings, in a range of other institutions, and following a multiplicity of pathways. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the challenges and perspectives of the lifelong learning in Croatia. Being an candidate country for the European union membership, Croatia is looking up to the lifelong learning programs of the European Union in order to set such a lifelong learning (educational) policy that will enable people to enter the educational system at different points as well as to motivate people to consider education and learning a process that continuously takes place throughout the lifetime.
