The Lifelong Learning Institute was formed in 1999 and is already on the way to becoming a nationally and internationally recognised centre for lifelong learning research. It is part of the education research area in the University, which was graded 5 in the last Research Assessment Exercise. It draws together expertise on lifelong learning from different departments in the University, together with a wide range of other organisations, locally, regionally and nationally.
Particular research specialisms include work-based and work-related learning; widening access and participation; teaching and learning in further and higher education; career progression and the transitions from education and training; lifelong learning policy; and the social and economic contexts of lifelong learning.
