Lifelong Learning: Opportunity or Compulsion?

British Journal of Educational Studies 46 (3):251 - 263 (1998)
Lifelong learning is presented as a means for enabling individuals, organisations and nations to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive world. It suggests an extension of opportunity,involving all adults, whatever their interests or experience. There is also, however, a strong sense of expectation, even compulsion, with emphasis given to vocational forms of study and participation.
