Pathway 5- CHANGE HAPPENS!
Taking An Alternative Pathway
All "Lifelong Learners" have unlimited possibilities before them. The path of lifelong learning can bring many enriching opportunities for personal and professional growth. It is possible one might start their life-learning at college, but then an unforeseen circumstance changes the course of their pathway. Whether from a life challenge or by choice, lifelong learners actively pursue knowledge through real-world experiences in a variety of contexts...that may even lead them back to degree learning later in life.
Life-learning opportunities can help you follow your passion while earning a living and/or developing valuable skills and experiences along your career pathway.
