  • We are supporting and raising standards Recognised, research-based standards and qualifications, along with our project work, provide benefits to employers and stakeholders, such as:  Providing the workforce with externally recognised credibility and esteem  Helping to define and develop: > Job roles, responsibilities and competencies > Organisational procedures  Providing strategic guidance for: > Leadership and management > HR and staff development > Recruitment and retention
  • We are supporting and raising standards Recognised, research-based standards and qualifications, along with our project work, provide benefits to employers and stakeholders, such as:  Providing the latest research to support workforce planning  Reassuring learners about the quality of their qualifications We also help different areas of the workforce to work effectively together. For example, by running recruitment and retention campaigns and providing a free information and advice service.
  • We are supporting and raising standards There is a growing expectation that the lifelong learning workforce will adapt to the skills demands of the wider workforce. Engagement from you, as employers and stakeholders, is vital so that we can continue to contribute to your objectives.
  • We are A world class supporting and lifelong learning raising standards workforce
  • A world class lifelong learning workforce Recognised qualifications, based on National Occupational Standards, provide benefits to those who deliver and support lifelong learning:  You have the currency and credibility with which to improve your career prospects  You have proof of the career stage you're at, and that your skills are relevant. For instance, that you are up-to-date with new learning technologies  Your skills are transferable to other areas of the lifelong learning workforce and also across the UK
  • A world class lifelong learning workforce Standards and qualifications support an individual’s career journey and professional development. As the skills landscape is rapidly evolving, so job roles change and everyone needs to upskill. It is critical that the lifelong learning workforce has the right skills, as they are responsible for upskilling all other industries.
  • A world class All workforces lifelong learning better skilled and workforce equipped
  • All workforces better skilled and equipped Benefits to the larger UK workforce include:  Improving the skills of other workforces increases their productivity  Equality of opportunity for learners wherever they live in the UK  Learners have reassurance and confidence that they’re in good hands when their learning providers have recognised qualifications  Attracting and retaining the best people regardless of what group they come from
  • All workforces better skilled and equipped All other workforces rely on the lifelong learning workforce to upskill their own industries. Having a world class lifelong learning workforce enables the larger UK workforce to become world class.
  • All workforces A more inclusive better skilled and and prosperous equipped society
  • A more inclusive and prosperous society A standards-based learning environment supports better life choices for the individual, which can lead to:  Individual development and self-esteem  Better employment opportunities and higher earning potential  Improved social cohesion and stronger communities  Lower unemployment  Improved quality of life
  • A more inclusive and prosperous society Each area of our workforce has a positive impact on lives, and in turn on the UK marketplace. This means taxpayers' investment in lifelong learning attracts a good return. 'Every young person has their own story, and we try to unlock it.' Adam Purvis (head of Fairbridge charity), The Guardian, 2008
  • A more inclusive and prosperous society The lifelong learning workforce is critical in economic terms because it underpins the success of all other workforces. There is a direct link between skills, productivity and growth — meaning that lifelong learning is a catalyst for a better society. We need a highly skilled UK workforce to remain competitive in the global economy.

  • Lifelong learning is... For us, it is learning that happens outside of the school environment. This might be learning new work skills, or updating existing skills as job requirements change. Or it might be the inspiration people find at a youth group, or the opportunity for learning at a local library.
  • The lifelong learning workforce Our workforce includes 1.2 million people who are involved in the delivery of lifelong learning, as well as those who support that delivery. Investment in our workforce is critical to the success of all other workforces and our society. Lifelong learning is a priority sector — and a career in the lifelong learning sector is an exciting and rewarding one.
  • The lifelong learning workforce The lifelong learning workforce is spread across five interrelated areas: 1. Community learning and development 2. Further education 3. Higher education 4. Libraries, archives and information services 5. Work based learning

  • We are Lifelong Learning UK We’re an employer-led body with one agenda — to ensure the lifelong learning workforce is the best it can be. We understand that having a world class lifelong learning workforce is pivotal to having a world class UK workforce. We enable collaboration across the lifelong learning sector to achieve this. We are one of 25 Sector Skills Councils, and we are responsible for supporting the lifelong learning workforce by: developing and raising standards; providing labour market intelligence; engaging employers; and delivering innovative projects.
  • What we do Labour Market Intelligence: This research means we can compare current skills against the future needs of the workforce, and identify skills gaps and requirements. National Occupational Standards: We develop these standards based on our research and consultation with the sector. We are the recognised authority for developing these standards in the sector.
  • What we do Support professional qualifications: In turn, these standards inform the development of recognised professional qualifications. Information and Advice Service: This is a free advice service for anyone who is involved in, or interested in, lifelong learning. It is run by experienced practitioners, and is accessible by phone (020 7936 5798), by email (advice@lluk.org), on our website and at events.
  • What we do Supporting literature we produce includes: Research, standards, qualifications framework, case studies highlighting individuals and career maps illustrating skills transferability. Project work: We tender for, manage, deliver and evaluate a wide range of projects, initiatives and products that support workforce development.
  • What we do Standards Verification UK: Our trading subsidiary, Standards Verification UK, is responsible for the verification of initial teacher training as well as other forms of workforce training and development. www.standardsverificationuk.org
  • How we do it We listen to employer needs and represent them to government and funding bodies. We collaborate with and monitor all areas of the workforce to represent and respond to workforce demands and develop effective strategies. We recognise the different needs, legislations and policies of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. By sharing best practice we strive for qualifications that are recognised across all four nations. We promote equality and diversity, and demonstrate this in the way we work.
