Challenging exclusion and promoting participation
Established in 1993, FACE is a UK-wide network for those involved and concerned with access, continuing education and lifelong learning. As a multi-sector network, FACE and its members are at a the forefront of the challenges involved in providing lifelong learning opportunities.
One important role for FACE is to facilitate the exchange and dissemination of information and practices in Lifelong Learning and Continuing Education. By promoting collaboration and innovation between providers and practitioners FACE aims to support and encourage a socially inclusive framework for Lifelong Learning, challenging exclusion and fostering full participation. As a large multi-sector network we play a key role as a pressure group, service provider, staff development forum, national policy shaper, information service, event organiser.
We are also proud to partner with the following organisations:
- EUCEN (European University Continuation Education Network)
- Include (Swedish national WP network)
- NADE (National Association for Developmental Education)
