Improving your Lifelong Learning Platform

We are continuously monitoring the Lifelong Learning platform to ensure that all of our users receive the best experience possible. As we continue to develop and roll out the platform, we will be fixing bugs and identifying where improvements can be made, during this period we will be making sure that our Regional Leads are aware of any updates.

The College will listen and respond to your feedback in order to embed the new platform with improved functionality and user experience - please contact: lifelong@rcoa.ac.uk
