Really Useful Knowledge – Colchester’s lifelong learning legacy.
From the exclusive organisations of the eighteenth century to the open-access adult education opportunities that have developed through the last hundred years the people of Colchester have enthusiastically used and supported lifelong learning in the many forms it has taken. This book traces the way in which education in adult life developed in the town through people coming together to share learning.
This is a fascinating social history of a place that can truly be termed a ‘learning town’
