How you can see the benefits of lifelong learning

This module will help learners to think about their own attitude to learning and consider how they might want to learn now and in the future. The skills learnt in this module could be used to support someone starting their own business; someone learning more manual skills to take their career in a different direction; or someone learning new skills in order to move into a different industry such as the hospitality or care sector.

By the end of the module, learners will be able to:

  • Think about their own personal attitude to learning – both now and in the past
  • Identify the benefits of lifelong learning, in terms of increasing confidence and self-esteem, becoming less risk averse and more adaptable to change in the workplace, as well as helping them to achieve a more satisfying personal life
  • Consider how they might want to learn now and in the future, and what kind of learning they feel ready for
