‘It’s time for a National Lifelong Learning Strategy in the UK’ Times Higher Education Press, 07/02/2020

by UALL Executive member Jonathan Michie, Professor of Innovation and Knowledge Exchange, President of Kellogg College and Director of the Department for Continuing Education at the University of Oxford.

‘A recent editorial in Times Higher Education warned that the growing need for lifelong learning might bypass universities, and a feature article gave examples of this happening already in the US.

For the UK, there is an even greater danger – that the growing need for lifelong learning might bypass universities, businesses and the country. All communities would be left behind. Indeed, Britain is the only major European country where business investment in education and training is lower today than it was before the 2008-09 global financial crisis.’
