In my study I examine the features of the fourth industrial revolution as well as its expected effects on the labour market and adult education. I present the components (learning outcome-based curricula, the validation of prior learning, and competent and talented adult educators) and developed and enhanced skills (digital intelligence, global competences) that may contribute to efficient adaptation to the challenges posed by the fourth industrial revolution. I analyse to what extent adult education trends and practices are capable of effectively supporting adults in getting on in a diverse and transforming world.
