L4All is a pilot system that records and shares learning pathways through educational offerings with the aim of facilitating progression of lifelong learners from Secondary Education, through to Further Education and on to Higher Education (HE). The focus is on helping those post-16 learners who have traditionally not participated in HE. The L4All system allows learners to access information and resources registered with the system by their providers, to plan their own learning pathways, and to maintain and reflect on their learning throughout life. Tutors are able to register recommended pathways through courses and modules (which might be developed by a number of providers) thereby encouraging progression into HE. The system allows learners to share their learning plans and pathways with other learners (if they wish) in order to encourage collaborative learning and collaborative formulation of future learning goals and aspirations.
