Skills and Learning for Life

Welcome to the content of the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia’s ‘Skills and Learning for Life’ project.

This project aims to promote the importance of lifelong learning, and uses the stories of ten adult learners from diverse backgrounds to highlight the benefits of further learning.

We have produced ten five-minute audio segments profiling these adult learners, as well as 12 shorter audio segments (one to two minutes in length) providing information on adult learning opportunities and promoting participation in further learning.
