1.        Background

Learning happens over the course of a lifetime. It covers the entire range of formal, non-formal and informal learning activities - both general and vocational - undertaken by adults after leaving initial education and training. The previous National Lifelong Learning Strategy 2014-2020 paved the way for changes to take place. Programmes and actions implemented by this strategy has led to certain policy changes and initiatives that are reflected in the National Strategy for Lifelong Learning 2020-2030. Research, consultation sessions with stakeholders and focus groups has allowed this National Strategy to be drafted in a manner that groups major ambitions and direction of the sector into 4 pillars, each having several strategic actions. Learning is for the community; This strategy needs to be endorsed and discussed by the community to allow for a better understanding of our vision.​
