Today, education has become a process that spreads to all areas of life in order to obtain useful
information, to find a job or to improve oneself. School is no longer the only place society can get
education and access to knowledge. People can continue their education with lifelong education in
every period of their life.
Lifelong learning includes skills that are developing in the work life, voluntarily and willingly, in
learning institutions, or in the daily life interaction with the environment in which the individual lives.
Lifelong education enriches women's life, social life participation, active citizenship, personal
development and self-esteem. There are 23 Beldeevi established in Eskisehir and affiliated to Tepebasi
Municipality and working within the scope of lifelong education. The majority of the followers of these
courses are adult women. Belvedevleri successfully fulfills a number of important functions within the
scope of adult education, such as opening vocational and skills training courses, preparing awarenessraising training activities that will enable women to become socially strengthened, organizing
informative meetings with women and organizing training seminars.
In this study, a questionnaire consisting of 38 questions was applied to 325 courses to determine the
views and observations of the trainers attending to the Beldeevi. The data obtained in the study were
coded and loaded on the computer and analyzed using the "SPSS 23" statistical program. As a result
of the questionnaires, the demographical characteristics of the trainees, reasons for coming to the
courses, satisfaction levels and preferences for open and distance learning were determined.
