We seek to inspire individuals at different stages of life, with different interests and career goals, to make full use of the learning opportunities we provide and to enjoy experiencing the excellent teaching and study support available.

We pride ourselves on our awareness of, and provision for, mature learners, some of whom may lack the confidence and need particular kinds of learning support.

Vaughan Publications

The Vaughan Papers series was created to promote and disseminate the Institute of Lifelong Learning's research, with the aim of encouraging constructive debate on topics of concern to society and to make academic research, ideas and insights accessible to adult learners and society at large.

There are no new publications to the series, but it is still possible to order from the original catalogue (PDF). If you are interested in placing an order, please email printservices@le.ac.uk.
