Abstract: 
This study examined the relations among growth mindset, perceived job and family support, perceived institutional support, and the intention to pursue continuing education courses among working adults. One hundred and sixty-six working adults ranging from 21 to 70 years of age participated in this study. Generally, the bivariate correlational results showed that there were positive and significant relations among growth mindset, perceived job and family support, perceived institutional support, and the intention to pursue continuing education courses. The results have also revealed a significant and positive relation between growth mindset and number of hours the participants worked; and a negative and significant relation between growth mindset and age. Multiple regression was conducted. The results showed that growth mindset was a positive predictor of the intention to pursue continuing education courses, perceived job and family support, as well as perceived institutional support. Interactions among the predictor variables were not significant in the multiple regression analysis. Important implications for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers in continuing education are discussed.
