A new independent policy and research organisation dedicated to lifelong learning, full employment and inclusion.
We research what works, develop new ways of thinking and implement new approaches. Working with partners, we transform people’s experiences of learning and employment. What we do benefits individuals, families, communities and the wider economy.
We bring together over 90 years of combined history and heritage from the ‘National Institute of Adult Continuing Education’ and the ‘Centre for Economic & Social Inclusion’.
We often talk about lifelong learning, and the importance of providing opportunities for people to learn throughout their life course. There are plenty of reports which set out the evidence; whether that be the impact of learning on health and wellbeing, or how learning can help people access work and progress in their career. But it is the personal stories of adult learners that really show the value of lifelong learning.
