On Tuesday 1 February The Guardian website hosted a live question and answer session called Work Based Learning: Can it Help Your Career? This involved a panel of experts, including our Work Based Learning Manager Aidan Jackson, answering questions from members of the public on how work based learning can enhance their career or help with a change of direction.
This was so successful that The Guardian asked Lifelong Learning UK to participate in another live session on Tuesday 8 February. This covered the subject of returning to work after a career break and again Aidan joined the panel of experts helping to answer people’s questions. Both question and answer sessions were very well received; you can log on to the careers section of The Guardian website to see the questions asked alongside the expert responses: http://careers.guardian.co.uk/careers-blog/work-based-learning
