While adult education has a long history in Britain going back to the Workers Education Association of the 19th century, the term ‘lifelong learning’ does not extend much further back than the 1970s. This talk considered the socio-economic and technological changes that lay behind the idea of cradle to grave learning in a global context and the life enhancing benefits to be expected.
An open consultative conference was held at the UCL Institute Of Education. It was open to all interested parties, including representatives of the MCS funders.
