Lifelong learning is a term which has been prevalent for the some time and indicates learning for the love of it rather than to gain a qualification. The old adage “you learn something new everyday” is never more true than today where there is a wealth of information available via films, radio, television and on the Internet. You might want to do a course in a subject that interests you whether it is academic, vocational or to learn a new skill. You might even want to teach yourself something by visiting a library. There are endless possibilities.
Don’t forget you don’t even need to do a course if you don’t want to. Learn about the things you want to know about rather than what you were forced to at school. This can be for a hobby, because a friend spoke to you about it or you just came across it on the TV or in a magazine.
