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.

The benefits of Lifelong Learning

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 is a Lifelong Learner?

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

How to 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 my Lifelong Learning to obtain a recognized qualication?

Research into colleges and universi!es 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, determina!on and attainment. My aim is to advise and help those seeking infomation and guidance for their Lifelong learning and what qualifications they may be awarded.success@drbrenden.co.uk
