The Youth I.D.E.A.S. announced its latest report on
“Young People’s Views on Continuous Learning”


The Youth I.D.E.A.S. has released its twelfth study on “Young People’s Views on Continuous Learning”. According to the survey, among 527 respondents, they generally believe that continuous learning is a must, with the average score of 7.03 (10 being the highest score). However, only one-third (32.3%) of respondents revealed that they have participated in continuous learning within the past five years. Moreover, 46.0% of respondents have not yet decided their plan on continuous learning.


The Study found that respondents believe the most crucial factors in encouraging continuous learning include: value-adding and upgrading skills ( 37.0%),personal interest (34.7%) and increasing promotion opportunities at work (33.0%). On the other hand, respondents believe expensive tuition fee (19.5%) and the mismatch between work and learning schedule (18.0%) are the two major challenges when continuous learning. Therefore, to help young people overcome these obstacles can motivate them to participate in continuous learning, which in turn attains lifelong learning.
