image of Highlights from Education at a Glance 2010

Highlights from Education at a Glance 2010 is a companion publication to the OECD’s flagship compendium of education statistics, Education at a Glance. It provides easily accessible data on key topics in education today, including: education levels and student numbers, economic and social benefits of education, education spending, the school environment (hours of instruction, class size, etc.) and school choice and parent voice.

Each indicator is presented on a two-page spread. The left-hand page explains the significance of the indicator, discusses the main findings, examines key trends and provides readers with a roadmap for finding out more in the OECD education databases and in other OECD education publications. The right-hand page contains clearly presented charts and tables, accompanied by dynamic hyperlinks (StatLinks) that direct readers to the corresponding data in Excel™ format. Highlights from Education at a Glance 2010 is an ideal introduction to the OECD’s unrivalled collection of internationally comparable data on education and learning.

How many adults investigate training opportunities?

As noted on the preceding pages, education and training for adults are key to expanding the workforce’s skills. However, in most countries, substantial numbers of adults – especially those with relatively low levels of education – do not take part in further learning. Information, guidance and counselling services can provide a first step to increasing adult participation by helping to create accessible learning environments, supporting learning at all ages and in a range of settings, and empowering citizens to manage their learning and work. This spread looks at the number of adults who make use of such information and guidance systems.
