To become an effective educator involves the understanding how adults learn best and thus, identifying their learning styles and needs. Malcolm Knowles states that andragogy (adult learning) is “the art and science of helping adults learn” (Zmeyov 1998; Fidishun 2000)1. Lifelong learning consists of the attainment of enriching knowledge and skills, as a result, indicating a change in actions.

This gives guidance as what the learner needs to know, what the adult learner will learn and further to this, acquire the skills intended. In conclusion, the adult educator’s needs assessment is therefore characterized, to identify and understand if learning has taken place. The questioning technique is one of the formats identified to be used to learn about the adult learners. By gathering information, during an informal discussion, and interviewing the stakeholders, will define, what interests the participant to learn, in a cake decorating course. Questions were subjected to explore the participants’ motivations, experience and particular goals they aim to achieve from the course. Research serves the purpose to minimize problems that can impede learners’ participation from attending the course. The location, identified for the course, to be held in, is important.
