Lifelong learning

How do we ensure everyone has a fair chance to access lifelong learning?


What are the most effective ways to engage people and to inspire them to learn?

Lifelong learning has many benefits, including helping people to find work and build a career; improving health and wellbeing; supporting future generations, and helping people to be active citizens in their communities. Its importance is growing as longer life expectancy combines with a rapidly changing economy and society.

However, participation in lifelong learning has fallen over the last decade in Wales with large inequalities in access to learning by age, socioeconomic group, and prior educational attainment. Our work is focused on understanding patterns of participation in learning, researching the benefits, and developing ways to engage and to inspire people.
