Our lifelong learning programmes are aimed at those who enjoy and embrace personal development, knowledge, health and mental well-being. They are not formal education or qualifications, they are focused and serious activities for continuing development for our minds that build lifelong interests, knowledge and experiences. Lifelong learning is independent, self-motivating and fulfilling.
