We’re surrounded by interesting people doing interesting things, which is a nice place to be. We speak to educators – hailing from the universities, colleges and schools, the evening classes, informal workshops and skills-based sessions. We talk to the learners – people young and old, some who quit school at 16 or before, some who went on to do degrees, some who don’t see education as something that happens in a classroom. What unites these people? A desire to learn and to share knowledge. But as yet we don’t have an effective way to link up the learners with the educators, and to make learning accessible for people whatever their background and needs.
