Promoting learning and skills

Promoting learning and skills

Everyone should have the same opportunity to learn and achieve their ambitions in life, in their communities and at work.

Because our business is to look at what works and what doesn’t in learning, skills and employment, we have direct experience of the “wrongs to be righted”. And we have the evidence to back up our recommendations.

That’s why, as well as delivering the Festival of Learning, previously Adult Learners’ Week, we campaign, lobby and advocate on behalf of learners of all kinds, especially those at most disadvantage.

In the recent years, we have campaigned to:

As the UK National Coordinator for the European Agenda for Adult Learning 2015-17, we have built on the work undertaken in 2012-14 and 2014-15, and continue to contribute to the European Commission’s strategic priorities.

We want to work with anyone who is as passionate about learning and addressing disadvantage as we are.

So if you develop policy, inform opinion or develop learning and skills practice, or if you just care about learning, we want to challenge your thinking, engage you in debate, and encourage you to advocate alongside us, so that everyone can benefit from lifelong learning.

Join the debate on our blogs, follow us on Twitter, join us as a supporter or come along to our events.
