This book provides an up-to-date, accessible and critical resource relating to contemporary issues and debates in the Lifelong Learning Sector (LSS). This comprehensive book is an essential read, intended to support the numerous modules that cover this theme and striving to encourage readers to become critical, questioning practitioners in the LLS. It offers reflective tasks which focus on key issues and debates in the lifelong learning sector today and each chapter is clearly linked to the Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) standards, so it will provide a practical, useful reader for trainees and staff working in the LLS. The themes that are covered are presented in an accessible yet scholarly and critical format, and are underpinned by recent research as well as policy analysis.
