This is an explorative investigation concerning adult education the of Region Västra Götaland, Sweden. The background to this report is the importance of adult education in a rapidly changing society and the vision of lifelong learning as expressed by the Region. One of the main purposes of the report is to present an analysis of adult education in order to deepen the knowledge about adult education, focusing mainly on municipal adult education, and with the aim of contributing to local and regional planning of long-term sustainable adult education in the Region of Västra Götaland. Adult education has not been in focus in the school debate in Sweden during the last decade whereas the debate about youth education and the poor PISA results has been intense.The number of people born outside Sweden, and many of the immigrants are low educated, and so are sufficiently not qualified for the Swedish labor market. Those who are well educated still need schooling in their new country in order to understand Swedish society and the labor market. Supply and demand in the labor market are changing fast. Despite high unemployment, there is a lack of a qualified workforce in Sweden. The OECD study PIAAC demonstrated huge differences among the Swedish adult population in literacy skills, and the differences are ever growing. This is a worrying observation. Another instrument to measure and assess qualification and competence is the European Qualification Framework (EQF).The report discusses two main subjects of generic skills. One is how written language is used in some occupations (such as truck driver, car mechanic, clerk, enrolled nurse) in work life. An interesting result is that the workers in the study, by Anna Malin Karlsson 2003, use written language to a larger extent compared to their experiences and expectations from daily work. Even if workers don´t read longer and consecutive texts, they use written language more or less frequently. One conclusion is that literacy is a key competence in many occupations today. The other study investigates the use of mathematics in work life. We found only 75 scientific articles concerning the use of mathematics in work life. A main conclusion is that school based mathematic are very different from the kind of mathematics used in daily work. However, there is a lack of research about the daily use of mathematic in different kinds of occupations.
