Lifelong Learning Week

Monday 6 November – Friday 10 November 2023

Lifelong Learning Week is our annual week of activity taking place across England, bringing together work from across Learning and Work Institute and beyond. Each year, we seek to engage a wide range of stakeholders and raise the profile of lifelong learning across a range of policy areas.
