Advisory council seeks public input on improving lifelong learning


CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — The Learning Partners Advisory Council is seeking input from Islanders on how to advance excellence for all learners from birth to their senior years.

Over the past year, council members reviewed global education trends and studied learning throughout Islanders’ lifespan.

They put their collective thoughts into a discussion paper titled “Ambition, Excellence and Prosperity.”

“All Islanders have something to contribute, and we want to hear from as many people as possible on how we can build a culture of continuous learning that advances our quality of life and prosperity,” said Premier Wade MacLauchlan, the council’s co-chair.

The discussion paper outlines 10 priorities and directions for the Island community to collectively support learning excellence throughout early childhood, adolescence, adulthood and the senior years.

The Learning Partners Advisory Council was established in November 2015 to provide advice on strategies to support Islanders’ lifelong learning, and includes 25 learning champions from across the province.

 “By acting together, we can build connections between our formal and informal learning systems that help Islanders to reach their full potential as creative, skilled, and caring members of society,” said council co-chair Bill Whelan.

Islanders are encouraged to provide input before Jan. 31. Print copies are available by contacting April at 902-368-4502.
