Initially, it was consisted of eighty items concerning eight conceptual subscales which measure the awareness of lifelong learning, the attitudes towards the educational, vocational and development policies, the culture of lifelong learning, the business strategy, the system of values and ethical perceptions, the evaluation policy of the participation in educational programs, the orientation of trainee towards lifelong learning, the emotional identity of the participant (trainee) and finally, modern trends of lifelong learning. In particular, the paper reported the responses of eighty-seven Greek professionals either employees or employers from different companies and organizations located in Northern Greece. The results of the present study provided the final scale, which consisted of forty-two items of the initial LLEHUREDE Scale and for which strong evidence was ascertained. This was a valuable and reliable scale for measuring perceptions of the impact of lifelong learning on human resources development. It consisted of seven instead of the initial eight subscales and the one that was omitted, referred to the modern trends of lifelong learning.
