  1. 1. Education
  2. 2. What is “EDUCATION”? • Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. “We all know about education because we all live the education”
  3. 3. Types of education: • Formal education • Informal education • Non-formal education
  4. 4. Formal education • Systems of schooling involve institutionalized teaching and learning in relation to a curriculum, which itself is established according to a predetermined purpose of the schools in the system. The curriculum is a state law to ensure equal education for all. • This form of education is also referred to as main stream or traditional education. Beginning with nursery education and is followed by primary and secondary school and finishing with higher education.
  5. 5. Nursery education • Also known as elementary or preschool education, nursery education is the first step towards gaining formal education. It includes nursery school and kindergarten. This stage marks the stepping of the child from the comforts of a home to the world outside. Nursery education is usually given to children between this age of 3 and 5 years.

  7. 7. Primary education • After nursery education, a child is exposed to primary education where he establishes his foundation on various subjects, like mathematics, science, social sciences and language. The age of primary education and the subjects taught differ from on country to another.
  8. 8. Secondary education • Secondary education is the final stage that a child undergoes in a school during his adolescence. The education format transforms from a comprehensive primary education to optional and specialized training subjects. The purpose of secundary education can be to give common knowledge, to prepare for higher education or to train directly in a profession.
  9. 9. Higher education • Schooling gets over with secondary education and a student now enrolls himself in an undergraduate and post graduate college or university to receive the highest level of education in his subjects of specialization. Also known as tertiary education, higher education is a non-compulsory level of education.
  10. 10. Informal education • Informal education includes educating one through informal communication and reading books. In general, informal education is edifying someone outside the basic form of education, that is, in schools, and without the use of any learning methods.
  11. 11. Non-formal education • Non-formal learning is a distinction in learning between formal and informal learning. It is learning that occurs in a formal learning environment, but that is not formally recognised. It typically involves workshops, community courses, interest based courses, short courses, or conference style seminars. The learning takes place in a formal setting such as an educational organisation, but is not formally recognised within a curriculum or syllabus framework.
