Community-based learning
News Service

Community-based learning involves creating new learning opportunities within local communities but generally outside traditional learning institutions (e.g. school, college, university). It can also involve increasing learning opportunities in the home particularly through broadband developments.

When widening participation to learning, sustainability is a key factor and might need to be linked to other agendas like e-government, e-healthcare, e-commerce, urban and rural renewal, regeneration and development. Thus a multi-agency approach is required. Social housing associations particularly have an important role to play.
