Projects, Research and Development in Lifelong Learning

Lifelong Learning are involved in a wide range of projects and research related to various aspects of lifelong learning. Our main areas of interest are

  • Lifelong learning
  • Rural and community development
  • Informal and non-formal modes of learning
  • Co-production of Learning Curricula
  • Adult and Older learners
  • Welsh-medium lifelong learning
  • Equality and diversity issues, especially gender
  • Lifelong learning in rural communities
  • Issues around APEL
  • New technologies and lifelong learning
  • Evaluation of lifelong learning activities
  • Community Impact Studies
  • Mentoring Community Research

Many of our projects complement our teaching activity, and enable us to develop new learning materials, and to extend our activities to reach a wider range of learners across North Wales. Most of our projects also have a significant research and evaluation component. We frequently work in partnership with other organisations, including those from other European countries, and we currently have contacts with organisations in Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, the Balearic Islands, Romania, Sweden, Finland Latvia, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Turkey, Greece and Ireland.
