Abstract: Lifelong learning is necessary and is a consistency in learning all interests, knowledge and qualifications over one’s life as well as beyond the formal educational settings. Lifelong learning enables adaptation for individuals to the knowledge-based society as well as valuing all forms of learning. Today, with the evolution in technology, there is an increasing need to address the participation to lifelong learning in the construction industry within Singapore in order to make sure the construction demands will continue to prosper and increase. With that, it is necessary for employees and workers in the construction sector to acquire skillset and knowledge to adapt to the ever-changing world. This study attempts to identify the way to increase participation to lifelong learning within the construction industry in Singapore via the examination of motivational theories. With the establishment of the conceptual framework, Author adopted a mixed method research design where both quantitative and qualitative methods were conducted to analyse the results findings. Questionnaire surveys were conducted with PMETS within the targeted sector and data collected were analysed using the SPSS and SmartPLS 3.0 software for descriptive statistic analysis and inferential statistics analysis, respectively. Thereafter, expert interviews were conducted to gather additional insights and information on the findings from the analysis. The result of the analysis has positively displayed that the use of Self-determination theory (SDT) on individuals will produce a significant effect on the participation of lifelong learning within the construction industry. This signifies that, the execution of this theory as a practical use on the individuals in the construction industry will gradually increase the participation to lifelong learning. With that, the theory could also be applied to various sectors in order to improve the productivity of all sectors within the nation. Key Words: lifelong learning, Lifelong learning in the construction industry, improving
