100 years of learning and work

2021 marks the centenary of the founding of the British Institute of Adult Education, one of Learning and Work Institute’s predecessor organisations. We will be celebrating the past, present and future of our commitment to learning and work.

The British Institute of Adult Education was founded in 1921. Over the next century, we played a leading role in lifelong learning. This included helping to promote education through TV, supporting the development and creation of the British Film Institute and Arts Council, and  working with the Army on their skills and education programmes. Today, as Learning and Work Institute we work with a range of organisations to promote and support lifelong learning and social inclusion.

There will be a range of activities taking place through 2021 to mark this centenary and look at the future of access to learning and work.
