UALL Conference, 7 July - The Wider Benefits of Lifelong Learning: The Way Forward in the Current Political Climate

This Conference is taking place at Friends House, Euston, London - for further details, please see HERE

The social and economic benefits of lifelong learning are seldom challenged by policy-makers but neither are they actively championed. Opening with a keynote speech from Peter Scott, Professor of Higher Education Studies at UCL Institute of Education and including workshops with UALL networks the conference will give participants the opportunity to:

·        consider the wider social and economic benefits of lifelong learning

·        review recent policies and their effects

·        analyse and assess the new Government’s statements

·        develop a ‘Manifesto for Lifelong Learning’ to inform future policies

To join the mailing list and for further information contact Lucy Bate
