Lifelong learning has become a mantra, but what does learning mean and do in the lives of adults? How has it changed over time and across generations? This book states that learning 'means and does' much more in people's lives than is acknowledged in policies in Britain and Europe.



The project has generated insights in how learning has changed over time and across generations, what the connections are with the changing world of work, what differences learning makes for life chances, how we can learn from life and for life, and how people's prospects of learning can be improved. Combining life history and life-course research with analysis of longitudinal survey data, this book provides important insights into the learning biographies and trajectories of adults. The book shows that learning means and does much more in people's lives than is often acknowledged by current education policy and politics. In doing so, it is an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in the role and potential of learning through the lifecourse.
