Formal non formal education and informal learning

Formal, non formal education and informal learning

  • Formal education is education provided in a system of schools, colleges, universities and other formal educational institutions and normally intended to lead to a certification. Examples are secondary and vocational courses, degree and postgraduate courses.

  • Non Formal Education is organised and sustained educational activity that takes place both within and outside educational institutions. Depending on country contexts, it may cover educational programmes to impart adult literacy, basic education for out of school children, life-skills, work-skills, and general culture.

  • Informal learning is intentional, but less organised and less structured and may include for example learning events (activities) that occur in the family, in the work place, and in the daily life of every person, on a self-directed, family-directed or socially directed basis. Examples are the use of computers, printed materials, television programmes to acquire knowlwdge
