Lifelong learning

Alliance universities develop and deliver innovative training and education – designed to enable people to upskill and reskill throughout their lifetimes. 

“We believe in the transformational potential of lifelong learning; it remains one of the founding principles of University Alliance.”

Vanessa Wilson, University Alliance CEO

University Alliance supports the aims of the government’s Lifelong Learning Entitlement (LLE): from September 2025, there will be a single funding system enabling people to train, retrain and upskill flexibly over their working lives.

In 2022, we published our ‘LLE blueprint’ setting out how the LLE might work in practice.
