Informal adult and community learning resources

Resources
Skills for Life Network

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has brought together a wide range of resources specially designed to support anyone with a passion for creating, supporting or delivering high quality informal learning.

Whether you want to develop your skills as a learning facilitator, create a learning culture at work, find out how technology can support informal learning or get information about how you can open up a space for learning, there’s advice and help here for you.

What is informal adult learning?

Informal adult and community learning is learning for its own sake rather than to get a qualification. It covers a wide spectrum of activities from personal development through to family learning, community development and employability.

Who are these resources for?

Many different individuals and organisations are actively involved in informal learning. You might be supported by public funds, employed by a private business, lead a self-organised group or work for a voluntary organisation.
These resources will help you develop, deliver and/or support informal learning in places like libraries, museums, community centres, unionlearn centres, extended schools, children’s centres, colleges and workplaces.
