“I’ve left school, why do I need to learn?” is a question I get asked so many times, and my answer is always the same. We learn every day, without learning we would not engage in or experience life.
Learning allows us to develop and deepen skills, increase knowledge, understanding, awareness, values, ideas and feelings. Put simply, learning leads to change, development and the desire to learn more.
The Campaign for Learning defines learning in a great way, they say:
We know that learning through our lives makes us generally healthier, happier, longer-living and wealthier. Not only do we benefit as individuals, but learning beyond school has wide ranging and immeasurable benefits for our families and communities, society and the economy.
So what does this mean for business?
