About Sussex Learning Network

Established in 2005, Sussex Learning Network was one of the UK’s first Lifelong Learning Networks. It was set up to tackle the barriers further education (FE) students faced entering university and to create learning pathways to support them. Since then, SLN has evolved into a partnership of FE colleges, universities, local authorities and enterprise agencies that aims to enable the region’s learners to access, participate in and progress through to higher-level education, with a view to transforming lives and providing skilled workers for the Sussex economy. To achieve this, it funds and delivers a variety of innovative local projects, supports and creates resources for career practitioners, provides information on developments across the education sector, and challenges government to deliver equality of opportunity in education.

The Learning4Life Sussex website is funded by Uni Connect, which supports the government’s social mobility goals to rapidly increase the number of young people from underrepresented groups going on to higher education.
