Most of us, even those who are highly committed to learning and supporting others in their learning, are not very practiced in thinking or speaking about the ways in which we learn and our approaches to learning. This presentation will outline one empirically derived and extensively trialled learning inventory and consider how it can increase inclusion through aiding transition into HE. The Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory provides a shared language and framework and has been effectively used with a range of groups including young offenders, school students considered to be under performing and NEETs.
