To create a society where active participation in learning is recognised as the key to improving life chances and fulfilling potential
To help improve the life chances of people least likely to learn by promoting and facilitating active participation in learning
Where We Came From
We started life in 1995 as an RSA (the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce) initiative and became an independent charity in November 1997. We were created with the sole purpose of championing, as our name suggests, the cause for lifelong learning. To find out more about our history click here.
What we do
The Campaign for Learning is campaigning to create an inclusive society in which learning is valued, understood, wanted and widely available to every individual. We want to banish images of dry, dusty studying and promote the feeling of vibrant, relevant learning that can change people's lives. We want to develop such a hunger for learning that there is a public demand for stimulating, user-friendly learning opportunities that suit everyone's lifestyle.
We work to build motivation, create opportunities and provide support for learning in families and communities, workplaces and schools that leads to positive change. Key elements of our work are national promotion campaigns, projects, policy and advocacy, practitioner networks, research, events, consultancy and publications.
The Campaign is often a catalyst or partner in helping to effect change. We work with a variety of partners from national organisations to local community action groups and businesses. We have supported pioneering work in schools and workplaces. Our partnerships with a range of bodies have helped us tailor our work to meet both regional and local needs.
