Lifelong learning may be broadly defined as learning that is pursued throughout life: learning that is flexible, diverse and available at different times and in different places, through an interconnected web of different kinds of education and training that serve both life and work goals. Lifelong learning crosses sectors, promoting learning beyond traditional schooling and throughout adult life, after compulsory education is completed.
