Modern society has entered a new century in the process of increasing global change, among which human changes and their development sharply lag behind the changes in the techno-economic sphere. Global processes require overcoming this gap and creating a modern adult education system that shapes and develops human beings and, as a consequence, increases human capital.

The article describes digital adult education as a factor in improving national human capital, its direct impact on human development as a whole, and as an employee. It also shows Ukraine's place in the human capital index of countries, which includes education as one of the rating points. With the changing nature of work, some workers find themselves in a situation where their skills are lacking. Against the backdrop of transformations aimed at shaping and improving human capital, people of working age are experiencing increasing concern about job prospects and their social role. In the course of work, a number of benefits of lifelong learning have been identified and grouped into such categories as: increasing well-being, contributing to human capital through continuing vocational training and enriching one's life and realizing oneself as a person. Ukraine needs a radical change in the paradigm of its socio-economic progress, the transition to new forms of education, namely, more attention to adult education. It is the basis of a high quality of life and national human capital.
