Abstract: The purpose of the study is to detect the parameters of Greek reality related to the
determination of the motives that stimulate adult educators to participate in continuing
education, the estimation of their significance, their explanation and their connection
with job satisfaction. The survey was conducted in a representative sample and applied
in the prefecture of Ilia. For data collection a questionnaire of closed questions was
compiled. The findings revealed that adult educators seek learning changes motivated
by internal forces. Competition, rapid changes in the field of adult education and need
for employability determine the motivators. The orientation towards learning correlates
with the life cycle and the level of qualifications. Educators with low level of job
satisfaction are motivated to a great extent by external factors. Contrary to this, those
with high level of job satisfaction are motivated by internal forces. Recognition of
performance and the feeling of job security form the intensity of motives. The survey
results constitute a valuable input for the configuration of professional development
strategies in favour of the educators themselves but more for the development and
implementation of effective managerial policies on behalf of the educational
organisations who occupy this group of professionals.
