This research has been conducted to determine the relationship between the attitudes of teachers working in private teaching institutions, preparing students for university exams, and their lifelong learning competencies. In this study correlational survey model has been used. The research universe consists of 286 teachers working in 21 officially registered private teaching institutions in Northern Cyprus in the 2018-2019 academic year. The sample of the study is composed of 185 private teaching institution teachers selected by random sampling method. In the study, attitudes to lifelong learning and lifelong learning adequacy scales were used. As a result of the research, it can be said that teachers working in the private teaching institution have high attitudes towards lifelong learning and good lifelong learning competencies. As the attitudes of teachers regarding the lifelong learning approach increase, their lifelong learning competencies also increase. The attitudes of female and male teachers to the lifelong learning approach, whether full-time or not, and lifelong learning competencies are at the same level. Teachers taking courses in the past year have a higher attitude towards the lifelong learning approach.
