Post-compulsory and Lifelong Learning
The sector of post-compulsory education and lifelong learning is a wide and diverse one, covering areas such as the study of 14-19 education and training, further and higher education, adult education, informal learning and lifelong learning. This SIG aims to facilitate and stimulate debate amongst researchers in the field and assist them in communicating their work to inform understanding and to influence post-compulsory and lifelong learning education policy and practice. We also particularly welcome researchers and those interested in research in this sector, who are based in public and private institutions and organisations, beyond higher education institutions. The post-compulsory and lifelong learning SIG also has commonalities with other BERA SIGs such as Arts Based Educational Research, Comparative and International Education, Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy, Educational Effectiveness and Improvement, Inclusive Education, Leadership and Management, Literacy and Language, New Technologies in Education, Practitioner Research, Race, Ethnicity and Education, Research Methodology in Education, Social Justice, and Teacher Education and Development.
