Lifelong learning is a key government strategy - both in the UK and internationally - to promote economic growth and combat social exclusion. This book presents a highly innovative study of participation in lifelong learning and the problems which need to be overcome if lifelong learning policies are to be successful. It: provides a systematic analysis, based on innovative empirical research, of the social and economic realities which actually determine patterns of participation in lifelong learning; shows what the factors are that shape people's participation, or their decision not to participate; offers new insights into the processes of lifelong learning, which have important implications for the development of more effective policies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"... a solid, rigorous piece of research, with relevance far beyond the one area of Wales that the authors studied. It is an important contribution to our understanding of what we (and our policy makers) mean by lifelong learning." Learning and Skills Research
"This is a strong book with a powerful message. Research specialists will be interested by the methods used to investigate learning throughout the lifespan. The findings are highly original, and should make a considerable impact in Britain and elsewhere on scholars and policy makers alike." Professor John Field, Department of Continuing Education, University of Warwick
