Lifelong Learning Networks

Lifelong Learning Networks

Lifelong Learning Networks (LLNs) were a joint initiative in the UK between the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) and the former Department for Education and Skills (DfES). They were created as a result of [ HEFCE/LSC Circular Letter 12/2004] .

In June 2004, they invited Further Education Colleges (FECs) and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to forge partnerships, bringing together different types of learning provider in a single network. These networks would provide fresh opportunities for progression to higher education for vocational and work-based learners, supporting vocational education, learner development and lifelong learning.

[ Higher York] , the country's first LLN, hosts the [ Lifelong Learning Network National Forum] - an initiative designed to promote good practice and sharing ideas between the different LLNs across the country.
