Returning to study can be daunting, especially when having to inevitably juggle a range demands on time, energy and focus. However, this book helps to demystify what it means to be an adult learner, learning in an adult world. The book is very helpful designed to have a highly personalised approach. This has allowed for the content to provide clear and positive messages. Overall the key message is that adult learning is not only achievable, it can be life changing
This is a spendid book and one I wish I had come across sooner.
There are real gems of advice in here alongside a lot of common sense.
Very useful, not just for mature students, but for leaders of courses with mature students to try and help address retention issues especially the higher drop-out rates, for some courses, by mature students.
An excellent book! I will be recomending this to all mature students at the start of courses.
Really useful points discussed in this text, for those embarking on self reflection it would be useful to refer to in order to be able to support continued progression.
