Much of the attention related to the nation’s development and growth has focused on the education. Individuals have also noted education as the key to their success. Indeed education can enhance employability and knowledge workforce. However, only a small fraction of any nation has the privilege to graduate from the higher institution. As reported by UNESCO Statistic Montreal (2005), at the upper secondary level, global education ratio is 51% of upper school-age population and 45% only in East Asia. In Malaysia, total enrolment into tertiary education was reported as 2.4% of the population. Baring these figures in mind, where do the other millions of people turn to for their success? That is an important question to answer, more so with the ever competitive era. It is very unlikely the next few decades will witness larger number of graduates from the higher institutions, due to the limited resources. Thus, Lifelong Learning is the option or rather is the only means. (Authors' abstract)
