Lifelong Learning

Dr Brenden believes in Lifelong learning in the pursuit of knowledge for both personal and professional development. Dr Brenden can advise you on options to meet your needs.

Lifelong Learning is a formal and/or informal activity undertaken throughout life, with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and competences/achievements within a personal, civic, social and/or employment-related perspective..

The importance of Lifelong Learning:

Lifelong learners are motivated to learn and develop themselves, to enhance their understanding of the world around them, and to improve their career, skills and quality of life.


There can be many reasons why people dedicate their time to increasing their knowledge, both personal and professional, and learning beyond the traditional school years. There are countless benefits for the learner focused in his or her professional life. Such as, acquiring new knowledge, maintaining and improving skills, higher salary and status, respect in the community and among colleagues, and standing out from ‘the crowd’.

What does it mean to be a Lifelong Learner?

An individual who is voluntary committed, self-motivated in the pursuit of knowledge for either personal and/or professional reasons.

How can I become a Lifelong Learner?

Make Lifelong Learning a priority. Set goals and targets with a ‘road map’ for achievements. Be curious, challenging and develop insights into all your areas of interest. Keep a record of your progress and accomplishments.

How can I use this to obtain a qualification?

Research into colleges and universities that recognise Lifelong Learning and give advanced placement and credits toward a degree. Seek advice about ’competency-based degrees’. These degrees are highly recognized and valued because they illustrate, skills, determination and attainment.
