Lifelong learning is a term which has been prevalent for the last ten years or so 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.
