"Lifelong learning encompasses learning at all ages and subsumes formal, non-formal and informal learning." (UNESCO)

Lifelong learning offers the best possible way to encourage creativity and innovation, which will lead to new solutions to solve existing problems. Lifelong learning also encourages individuals to adapt to their constantly changing environment by striving to obtain new skills on a continual basis. Lifelong learning offers a chance to reduce inequality as individuals search for new ways of solving local, national and international issues.

The Enjoy TEFL Online TEFL Courses and Specialist Teaching Mindfulness Courses encourage Lifelong learning by teaching you cognitive, affective and metacognitive skills. Our hope is that you will introduce these skills to your students and give them the clarity to enable them to see their true potential and pursue their dreams of creativity, adaptability and innovation. People never forget education and kindness. It's easier than you think with Enjoy TEFL.
