Adult education courses cut

A demonstration in February this year protesting cuts in the adult education budget

Sweden’s national adult education system, Komvux, is having to cut some 12,000 places on a range of courses in the wake of government funding cuts.

According to Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet, the loss of the 12,000 places represents a 14 percent drop compared to last year.

Almost three quarters of Sweden’s local councils are reducing the number of courses on offer.

Education Minister Jan Björklund has played down the cuts saying Sweden’s current strong economic growth means fewer adults are seeking extra training.

In the past year Komvux has seen government funding cut by some 90 million US dollars.
