Abstract: Present and Perspectives of the Adult Education Theory in the System of Andragogical Sciencepp. The adult education theory belongs to the fundamental theoretical disciplines of andragogy and the development of its fundamental assumptions is an important prerequisite for the development of andragogy. The current level of its terminology and system apparatus in comparison to other disciplines of andragogy currently does not fully enable to develop primarily practical-application functions, and thus leaves its potential unfulfilled. Building of an education theory on interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary principles is now legitimate and allows the use of research results of other sciences (philosophy, anthropology, pedagogy, sociology, psychology, ethics, cultural studies, etc.). The adult education theory cannot be built only as a theory for theory (normative aspect), but it should develop its own exploratory, explanatory and analytical potential for the needs of support of self-development of an adult. It envisages the creation of a scientifically justified system of adult education and self-education as a theory providing sufficiently developed and socially applicable model of andragogical action. Prospects of the adult education theory are combined with the need to define and understand the basic terms (education and self-education of adults), their relations in the system of science, explanation of subject and functions (normative and practical, through the development of basic and applied research and creation of the curriculum components (objectives, principles, contents, education process and others).

Key words: education and adult education, adult education theory, docility, self-education of adults, paradigm of science, the aim and content of education and self-education of an adult

Abstract: The Importance of Functional Literacy in Relation to Changes in the Labor Market. The technological development and the gradual transformation of the labour market in the global economy put increasing emphasis on the development of adults’ functional literacy. Number of jobs for people with basic education in the EU gradually declines in favour of jobs that require higher qualification. It is, however, characterized by higher demands for competencies and practical skillpp. Importance of functional literacy in global society is growing not only in terms of working life, but also through social inclusion and social rolepp. Our society is being digitized therefore work with text and basic maths operations becomes routine, regardless of the level of education or profession of the employee. Good level of functional literacy opens the door not only to higher work efficiency, but also to better employment. The international literacy research focused on the functional literacy of adults imply that specific groups of adults lack these skills and they can be at risk in the labour market and also in their life in the modern society.

Key words: labour market, qualification, adult education, functional literacy
