Abstract: Education is a permanent process and a person learns throughout his lifetime. There is, therefore, a need for continuing the education of the labour force and this has its own corollary, that the individual worker has the right to be continuously educated throughout his career. Before proceeding we have to attempt a clarification of what workers' education implies. Educators often reflect upon the significance, aims and purpose of their work. A worker educator has to be aware that any educational activity among adults must involve learning for a social purpose. The well-informed citizen will participate fruitfully in social action, thus strengthening democratic attitudes and values through his participative learning. [excerpt]
