Abstract

The purpose of this study is to estimate the effects continuation of LL (lifelong learning), expected benefits of LL, and priority of LL, on the LL participant's perception of the role of government, employer, university, family, and self in promoting LL and also the access, quality and cost of LL. A cross-section data were collected from the Universiti Utara Malaysia MBA programme's adult learners through self-administered questionnaires. Descriptive statistics and correlation analysis was used to examine the relationship between the perceptions of LL and continuation, expectation and priority of LL. In addition, the multiple regression models are used to estimate the effects of the continuation of LL, expected benefits of LL, and priority of LL, on the LL participant's perceptions of LL. Results of descriptive and correlation shows there is a positive relationship between the perception of LL and the continuation of education, expectation and priority of LL. Nevertheless, results of multiple regression models, after controlling the influence of socio-demographic variables, it is only the continuation of LL has positive and significant effect on almost all the perceptions except the role government and employer; whereas, the priority of LL has only a positive effect on the perception of government. On the other hand, expected benefit of LL has no significant effects on all the perceptions. Policy implications, discussions and recommendations have been discussed in enhancing government's role in promoting LL in Malaysia.
