Lifelong and Continuing Education Book Description:

First published in 1999, this volume recognises that lifelong and continuing education is one of the main issues on the educational stage. In the United Kingdom it is a key feature of the government's educational initiative as reflected in the Green Paper, 'The Learning Age: a Renaissance for a New Britain' [DfEE, 1988]. This book provides a range of contributions to the current debate from academic practitioners. It includes both theoretical discussions and empirically-based studies. Lifelong learning continues to raise important educational questions which are relevant in many countries. These include issues concerning how to enable individuals to reach their potential for self-fulfilment; how to ensure that educational opportunities are interesting and available to all; and how to ensure that a nation's workforce is adaptable and well-educated. Each chapter explores a dimension of such fundamental questions.
