Our training approach

The promotion of lifelong learning has always been very important to BJF since our beginnings back in 1972 as an adult education organisation. 

We understand that people learning and doing for themselves has a positive impact on their wellbeing and a better chance of achieving sustainable change.
We work as enablers meaning that we co-produce, with our communities, new ways of working around ageing, pilot new ideas and generate training programmes and resources.

We are an accredited centre for the Open College Network and have a range of courses registered with them including Active Ageing; Addressing Loneliness and Planning for Retirement.
