Forum for Life-Based Learning

A warm welcome to our forum.

Our aim is to promote the idea of a life-based approach to learning for children aged between 5 and 11.

The forum originated in the UK, but this is not just a UK initiative. Wherever in the world you live — and regardless of whether or not your background is in education — we invite you to join us.

The words ‘life-based learning’ may in themselves have been enough to convince you. In which case, click here to add your name to the growing list of forum members and we will keep you in touch with news and views and the progress of life-based learning.

Alternatively, you may wish to visit the Explore section of the website to find out more about life-based learning.

The one request we make is that you join the forum as the surest way of showing your support.

Support us in what is a radical and vitally important departure from the current subject-dominated approach to learning.
