Lifelong learning should provide for all members of society, from the very young to the elderly, including the disadvantaged, the disabled and those living in difficult circumstances. Comprising formal, non formal and informal education services, lifelong learning is characterized by diverse modes of delivery which are innovative, flexible and adaptable and by content which is relevant and responsive to needs. Apart from helping people to keep pace with rapid developments in various fields of knowledge, it is also a means to cultivate responsible citizenship and promote and social cohesion.

Lifelong learning begins with health, nutrition, care and development initiatives to ensure every child is given the best possible start in life. It covers basic education services to equip the individual with the foundational knowledge and skills on which they can build throughout life. It integrates life skills training on a wide range of social, economic and political issues through education programmes aimed at developing self-awareness, analytical and critical thinking skills, communication and interpersonal skills, decision-making and problem-solving skills. It comprises vocational skills and workplace training to prepare young people to enter the 21st century workforce as well as initiatives to upgrade or retrain members of the existing workforce. It includes higher education opportunities in the general or vocational streams. In Thailand, an aging population has also highlighted the need for education and training which will help the elderly to remain active and productive members of society.
