For decades, 'lifelong learning' has been the clarion call of governments, employers and higher education institutions - but what has that achieved? And is it in tension with the push for greater performance at work?

This week on The GoodPractice Podcast, Activate Learning's Helen Blunden joins Ross G and Owen to discuss:

  • what 'lifelong learning' means
  • how different organisations respond to the new for new skills
  • how far individuals need to take ownership of their own learning.
