Thursday 29th of June ‘Personal Leadership and Respect for Others – Pillars of Lifelong Learning’

Thursday 29th June 10.00am – 4.30pm

One day Symposium Personal Leadership and Respect for Others – Pillars of Lifelong Learning

Who should attend?

Adult educators, learning professionals, workplace educators, those who work with others and have an interest in lifelong learning or pastoral care.


In a world where the agenda for adult education and lifelong learning is dominated by workforce requirements, skill based policies and government regulation it is important not to lose sight of the personal, pastoral and emancipatory aspects of adult learning.

In this workshop, we investigate notions of personal leadership and respect for others as two (very much related) pillars of education. We ask about ‘values’ as learning outcomes as we strive to work with others in an inclusive and respectful manner.

Furthermore, we seek to extend the traditional boundaries of school and college learning to encompass learning throughout the lifespan. Learning is part of life itself, it is something that we continue to do as long as we live – so long as we have a future we will need to learn.

There will also be a short presentation on NCI’s new MA/PG Diploma in Personal Leadership and Pastoral Care.
