BOOK TRAILER


The Story Behind This Book
In Lifelong Learning: A View from the Coal Face, Marsh revisits earlier research which examined how the then current government initiatives could contribute to the development of human potential and more importantly, the whole person ¬– the centre of Marsh’s personal ethos. This extensive research was undertaken in the light of a new focus on work-based learning in the 1990’s an area in which the author was involved as she worked with a wide spectrum of adult learners across the UK. In the light of the current skills shortage and need for continual development, this book is the springboard of the new Lifelong Learning:Personal Effectiveness Guides by Rosalie Marsh which draw from her extensive skills & industrial experience in sales management and work-based learning in adult and further education.
