From the Back Cover:

Lifelong learning increasingly dominates discussions of post-compulsory education and training policies. Although the idea of lifelong learning has been most frequently used in discussions of higher and adult education and vocational training, it further provides a framework for debating and analysing the front end of education as well as its post-school phases.

Lifelong Learning examines the issues in four sections:

Theoretical Perspectives; Curriculum; International Perspectives; and Widening Participation. Such a mix serves to enrich the readers' interdisciplinary perspectives on contemporary initiatives. These sections include studies on important topics such as:
-- community education
-- popular education
-- higher education
-- the corporate university
-- the school curriculum
-- vocational studies

With contributors from China, Africa, USA, Canada, UK and other European countries, Lifelong Learning offers a comprehensive and challenging account of issues arising from varying lifelong learning decisions, and exposes the impact these decisions have on such a large majority of the population.

About the Author:

John Field is Chair of Lifelong Learning, University of Warwick.
Mal Leicester is Chair of Adult Learning and Teaching, University of Nottingham.
