Abstract

The ambition of the Learning Lives project was to investigate what learning means and does in the lives of adults. Over a three-year period we conducted more than 500 interviews with about 120 adults aged 25-84. In addition we analysed data from the British Household Panel Survey, an annual survey of about 5,500 UK households. The Learning Lives project took a biographical approach, focusing on individual adults and their learning biographies and trajectories.
