Publication type: Press Release and Report

In a nutshell: The report Enhancing informal adult learning for older people in care settings is putting into practice the commitments of The Learning Revolution White Paper, which reported that ‘learning can improve the health and quality of life for older people in care, but too often it’s missing’.  Funded by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the report draws on feedback from organisations and individuals and highlights examples of existing good practice, setting out the challenges in providing more learning opportunities for older people in care settings. An on-line forum has been created on the Learning Revolution discussion-site to capture thoughts and ideas; these contributions will be included in the production of a toolkit of best practice to be published next year.
