Dr. Catherine Maunsell (St. Patrick’s College): Lifelong learning and associated policy objectives (European, national, and institutional)

Catherine’s presentation drew predominantly on the National Report on Lifelong Learning in Ireland (2008) , produced as part of the European Commission 6th Framework Research Programme: Towards a Lifelong Learning Society in Europe: The Contribution of the Education System (LLL2010).


Catherine provided a broad overview of the emergence of lifelong learning as a concept and policy driver. She outlined some current policy objectives at both a European and national level and identified some persistent challenges within Irish lifelong learning policy and practice.
