The book is aimed at students who are taking a wide variety of lifelong learning qualifications. The content covers a list of key topics that are central or even 'troublesome' in lifelong learning. Each entry offers a critically informed and up-to-date introduction to the topic at hand, drawing on existing literature and scholarship/research, to provide a meaningful and relevant overview for practitioners, who will value relatively brief treatment of each topic.
