Lifelong learning

Education, training, youth, sport

The concept of lifelong learning is essential to the competitiveness of the knowledge economy. It applies to all levels of education and training and concerns all stages of life, as well as the different forms of apprenticeship. Lifelong learning aims to provide citizens with tools for personal development, social integration and participation in the knowledge economy. The Comenius (for schools), Erasmus (for higher education), Leonardo da Vinci (for vocational training and education) and Grundtvig (for adult education) programmes, now united under the umbrella of the Lifelong Learning Programme, contribute to achieving these objectives.
