Adult and Continuing Education

Learning Today – and Tomorrow

The future always brings change, and the world of work is poised to evolve at a dizzying pace. Indeed, not many of today's young adults will be able to pursue their chosen professions just as they learned them until they retire. This is why tailored programmes for young adults and professionals – featuring methods and content that factor in not only each individual learner’s professional goals, but his or her situation in life, as well – are key to the development of both successful careers and the economy at large.

Adult education: We’ll help you get ahead

The Klett Group has consolidated its attendance-based universities and distance-learning schools and universities under the umbrella of Klett Erwachsenen- und Weiterbildungsgesellschaft. Our distance-learning schools and universities welcome adults of all ages who want to achieve their learning goals alongside their careers. Klett's attendance-based universities, meanwhile, typically attract young adults who are seeking to obtain academic qualifications immediately after secondary school or their first vocational training.

Quality assurance: We welcome scrutiny

The primary trait shared by all the services Klett offers in adult and continuing education is a high level of quality. The distance-learning schools under the umbrella of Klett Erwachsenen- und Weiterbildungsgesellschaft have been certified accordingly by the ZFU (Germany's main supervisory authority for distance-learning institutions) and in line with the corresponding ISO and AZAV norms. All our universities are state-approved and accredited by the German Council of Science and Humanities. The wide range of study courses we provide are also appraised by renowned international agencies on an ongoing basis.


A variety of methods to suit each individual's needs

The demand for tailored offerings continues to grow more and more diverse. Customers who want to learn where and when they like favour programmes based on methods that require as little physical attendance as possible. These are the people our distance-learning services are meant to accommodate.

For many others, interacting directly with their teachers and socially with their classmates is very important. The Klett Group's attendance-based institutions are optimised to meet these needs. And for those who want the best of both worlds, we are adding more and more mixed formats and blended learning concepts to our portfolio.


Our mission is to enable everyone to accomplish their learning objectives.

To help all learners achieve their goals, all the education companies within Klett Erwachsenen- und Weiterbildungsgesellschaft invest in the development of learning management systems and make learning materials available digitally in the form of videos, podcasts, simulations, and e-learning modules. This gives students and other participants access to cutting-edge methods as they work towards completing courses and reaching their education goals. No matter what path each learner chooses, our mission is to enable everyone to accomplish their learning objectives. We do everything in our power to achieve that aim.
