Learning to change: Track 1

Featuring: Video Video

Are you thinking about making a significant change in your life, such as returning to study or taking a different direction at work? This album looks at the learning journey of three people who’ve changed their lives through learning, not only through formal education, but by a continuous process of lifelong learning. The four video tracks show you how to build on what you already know and how to use your skills and qualities to achieve change. They encourage you to consider the opportunities that are open to you and help you set goals for the future. This material forms part of the course Y165, Learning to Change.
