Workers Education covers a whole range of skills and knowledge, which contribute to the harmonious development of a worker’s personality, his role in the society and the knowledge and attitudes required for such roles.
Workers Education is a special kind of adult education designed to give workers a better understanding of their status, rights and responsibilities as workers, as union members, as family members and as citizens.
Workers Education emphasises group advancement and solution of group problems. It differs from vocational and professional education, which is meant for individual advancement whereas the Workers Education lays stress on group advancement. Education does not mean merely literacy, but also should enable an individual to understand his/her responsibility towards family, work place, society and nation.
Empowerment of workers is an essential component of Workers Education as the functioning and ultimate results achieved of any organization depends mostly on its workers.
