A Place For Learning by RSA Events

http://ift.tt/2CB5hFo

How can learning be strengthened to meet the demands of the 21st century? RSA Chief Executive Matthew Taylor explores how we create an environment of active learning and increase opportunities for development and fulfilment.

Lifelong learning has never been more crucial. We face the challenge of a workplace which is transforming rapidly while technology is driving massive economic and social changes. We are living longer, in more diverse communities and connected on a global scale – understanding the world around us is increasingly important. Yet the UK lags behind in adult literacy and numeracy while adult education provision is declining and there is no national strategy for lifelong learning.

This event was recorded live at The RSA on Tuesday 20th February 2018. Discover more about this event here: http://ift.tt/2ELfuoU
