The study aimed to construct and validate the Scale of Barriers to Participation in Education. The bases for item generation were various theoretic and empirical concepts. In order to test validity and internal consistency of the scale, item analysis, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis and Cronbach’s α were used. Based on the sample of 158 adults, the factor analysis with the principal components extracted 3 components: Time and logistics barriers, (ii) Personal barriers and (iii) Perceived Effort. Results indicate Scale of Barriers to Participation in Education to be a valid and a reliable instrument for measuring barriers in entering education.
