Viola Tamasova – Silvia Barnova
The theoretical study deals with the issues of education and lifelong learning components in public administration. It points out that the quality of implementation of each profession depends largely on the quality of the concept of lifelong professional development, formulation of its functions, objectives, content types, forms and methods, organization and follow-up legislation to further education and self-education as a trend set by the EU. The system of lifelong education in public administration is carried out on a voluntary basis, to the employees own needs to push the limits of their professional development opportunities further, as required by the needs of the society as a result of economic, cultural, historical and social changes. Education is always linked with the requirements of the employer and the active application in the labor market.
