Curriculum reform for 5- to 11-year-olds is very obviously and directly relevant to people in education — children, teachers, governors. But life-based learning is actually relevant to us all.

Life-based learning is relevant to us all, regardless of whether or not we are formally a part of the education system.

Whether your interest is in promoting healthy lifestyles and wellbeing, the arts, community cohesion, the way we use the planet’s resources, or one of the many other areas of importance and concern in the modern world, you can support the next generation by helping us shape a curriculum that genuinely meets their needs.

There are lots of ways you can help promote the message about a life-based approach to learning.
