The article reveals the role of modern education as one of the most important socioeconomic development components, and a means for solving a set of global problems, in particular ensuring further mankind’s existence. In this context, the authors emphasize that under the conditions of world systems’ globalization and internationalization, continuing or lifelong education is currently becoming one of the most actively discussed topics in society. The paper aims at the determination of the role of education in social development, as well as to find a correlation between continuing education effectiveness and personal development. It is proved that as a leading factor of sustainable social development, life-long education is a universal civilization resource raising the possibility of each individual’s potential development creating a synergistic effect of a positive influence on social changes. It contributes to raising the level of social understanding, interaction and cooperation, as well as a social tension reduction. Besides, continuing education facilitates innovation development, positively affects labour efficiency increasing its productivity, and encourages the use of new equipment together with innovative technology development. The results of the international expert surveys on the positive impact of various forms of adult education and training on labour productivity and the employment of different population segments are presented. The participation of Ukraine’s population in formal and non-formal education, as well as other indicators illustrating the level of life-long education development in our country are also covered. The conclusion is made on the necessity of introducing some measures in Ukraine aimed at the effective functioning of the continuing education system.
