The Lifelong Learning Century

10 November 2021

Catch up on the event

The British Institute of Adult Education was founded in 1921. Over the next century, we played a leading role in lifelong learning. Today, as Learning and Work Institute, we work with a range of organisations to promote and support lifelong learning and social inclusion.

As we mark our centenary, this event celebrated the impact of lifelong learning and look ahead to the future. We heard from people who have transformed their lives through learning, including Festival of Learning award winners. There will also be a debate with an expert panel the importance of lifelong learning, the current state of play, and what the next century might look like for learning and work opportunities.

This event was live streamed from City Lit College, where we hosted a small group of our key stakeholders, award winners and partners.
