The Continuing Learning Group has come out of the Senior Learners' Programme, which was founded in 2006 as part of the Department of Continuing Education's long commitment to supporting older people's learning and Lancaster University's ongoing widening access and participation agenda.
In 2009-10 a Government Transformation Fund project, the 'New Learning Adventure', was the basis of a very productive learning partnership between the Department of Continuing Education and Lancaster and Morecambe University of the Third Age (U3A).
These partnerships and projects continue, but have moved from the Department of Continuing Education to the Centre for Ageing Research under a new name, The Continuing Learning Group.
The group now hosts a comprehensive website which contains up-to-date news and events as well as a host of useful information which is of interest to older learners.
