Top Four Stages Of Formal Education

Image
In our previous lessons, we learned what really education is, we also considered the various forms of education as well as it impact on our modern society.

In today’s post however, I want to focus on the different stages of formal education. If you have not read these articles from the start, I suggest you catch up here first: What Really Is Education?What Is Formal Education?What Is Non Formal Education?What Is Informal Education?
Formal learning is typically divided into a number of educational stages covering early childhood education, primary education, secondary education and tertiary (or higher) education.

What is Informal Education?

In our previous lessons, we talked about what really education is and what formal and non formal education involves.

In this lesson however, we want to look at what informal education involves.

Informal education involves no formal curriculum and no credits earned. 
The teacher is simply someone with more experience such as a parent, grandparent or a friend. 
A father teaching his child to play catch or a babysitter teaching a child their ABC’s is an example of informal education.
These may be overly simplified explanations. There are times when the lines between each type of learning get blurred, as well. It isn’t always as cut and dry as it seems, but these definitions give you a general idea of each type of learning.

Non-formal education is organized (even if it is only loosely organized), may or may not be guided by a formal curriculum. 
This type of education may be led by a qualified teacher or by a leader with more experience. 
Though it doesn’t result in a formal degree or diploma, non-formal education is highly enriching and builds an individual’s skills and capacities. 
Continuing education courses are an example for adults. Girl guides and boy scouts are an example for children. It is often considered more engaging, as the learner’s interest is a driving force behind their participation.

Highlights
1. Flexible.
2. Life environment and learner oriented.
3. Diversified in content and method.
4. Non-authoritarian

Formal education comprises of the basic education that a person receives at school.
