Lifelong Learning

Learning new skills can help you to build confidence and self-esteem, and open the way to other training, or to paid employment. Or learning can be just about learning something more on a topic you are interested in.

Education is life: 'not merely preparation for an unknown kind of future living... The whole of life is learning, therefore education can have no endings.' (Lindeman 1926)

"Lifelong Learning should be for all aspects of life and meet a variety of needs and objectives. It should foster personal and collective development, stimulate achievement, encourage creativity, provide and enhance skills, contribute to enlargement of knowledge itself, enhance cultural and leisure pursuits, and underpin citizenship and independent living"
(Fryer Report "Learning in the 21st Century")
