Lifelong Learning Week

Monday 7 November – Friday 11 November 2022

#LifelongLearningWeek is our annual week of activity taking place across England, bringing together work from across Learning and Work Institute and beyond. We want to engage a wide range of stakeholders and raise the profile of lifelong learning across a range of policy areas.

What are the main objectives?

  • To raise the profile of lifelong learning.
  • To celebrate and champion adult learners and adult learning providers.
  • To drive a shared focus among policymakers, providers and stakeholders on increasing opportunities for lifelong learning.

How can you get involved?

If you’re wondering how you might support the week, think about:

  • Do you have a spokesperson for a blog, video or webinar that we could share?
  • Are you able to hold an activity or encourage members to arrange them in Lifelong Learning Week? Could a local MP or leader be invited?
  • Do you have resources or reports you can launch to tie into Lifelong Learning Week?
  • Do you have case studies of people or projects?
  • Could you actively support Lifelong Learning Week with interesting and relevant posts on social media?
