Education is an extremely detailed process that lays out multiple approaches as to what benefits can be availed through it. As the nature of this process is uncertain and relative, the most common benefit that can be achieved from this process is the adoption of learning outcomes.

Since the managerial discourse dominates the process of education hence the consequences of this process are tri-fold and hence this process becomes subject to alteration. Previously the contemporary discourse of education acted as a means through which children and people, in general, we’re able to reach their potential and this contemporary discourse was widely accepted and practiced.

Within the post-industrial economy, ideas related to knowledge and education are more creative and original leading to a more practical approach towards the process of education. In the present era, this process involves facilitated learning as well as the acquisition of skills, knowledge and values.

Some of the most common methods of education are:

  1. Teaching
  2. Story Telling
  3. Discussion
  4. Research
  5. Training

Factors that facilitate the process of Education

  • Student Self-Motivation

Students are expected usually to have an inquisitive nature and a self-learning attitude to seek and explore through the educational process. Although, teaching and training do take place in educational centers without a determined attitude, seeking education is a process that goes down the drain.

  • Student Background

Each student has a different family background and baggage of experiences. So, for each of them, the goal of attaining education is different. Some students are seeking just to please their parents because their parents aren’t much educated, some belong to a family of well-educated people hence are seeking education due to family pressure whereas some are just seeking because they want to work within a community or they want to enjoy the reputation of being educated in society and lastly most people seek education for self-learning.

  • Type of training organization

Each training organization or learning center is different from the other. Some training organizations act as business catalysts and are just there to make dollars without focusing on the real objective of providing education to children or people in general. Their absolute goal is deriving maximum profit whereas for some organizations the learning of their students matters the most and they are more focused on attaining the main objective of providing education rather than having a materialistic approach.
