Continuing education is an all-encompassing term within a broad spectrum of post-secondary learning activities and programs.. Recognized forms of post-secondary learning activities within the domain include: degree credit courses by non-traditional students, non-degree career training, workforce training, formal personal enrichment courses self-directed learning and experiential learning as applied to problem solving.
General continuing education is similar to adult education, at least in being intended for adult learners, especially those beyond traditional undergraduate college or university age. However, it is not normally considered to include basic instruction such as literacy, English language skills, or programs such as vocational training or GED
preparation. Instead, as the term suggests, it is assumed that the
student already has a college education and is simply continuing it.
