Lifelong Learning – Why?
According to the definition by Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org) lifelong learning, also known as LLL, i.e. is the “lifelong, life wide, voluntary, and self-motivated” pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons. The term recognises that learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom, but takes place throughout life and in a range of situations. It is for this reason that Innovatus has entrenched the concept of lifelong learning amongst all its staff, management and students. Our programmes have multiple articulation and progression possibilities so that students can practice the concept of lifelong learning. Innovatus has positioned itself perfectly within the community to innovate education practices in teaching and learning. So we urge all prospective students and adults requiring personal growth and new found achievement, to join the leaders in education, training and development.
