Investigating older people’s learning opportunities

The aim of this project, which starts in September, is to explore the learning opportunities and experiences of older people and retirees. This will initially focus on subjects taught and facilitated by experts, at colleges and other organisations, and will identify taught courses that are available for free, or at a reduced fee for older people.

We also plan to tell the stories of older people who have done either face to face or online courses, and how they adjusted to the learning process. Looking at how they benefitted in wellbeing, confidence, channelling creative skills, and by just indulging their curiosity.

This will undoubtedly touch on digital inclusion, volunteering, boosting one’s brain power, and other tropics that interest Ransackers Association. If you are an older person and have recently undertaken a course of study, either with or without a qualification at the end, we would like to hear from you.
