Adult


4 child terms

Any person aged 16 years or older who has left the initial education and training system
(Note: This is a pragmatic definition for EU purposes, based on the fact that 16 is the age of majority in some EU countries, e.g. Scotland, and that international surveys of adult literacy and numeracy tend to cover the age-range 16 to 60, 64 or 65.
