About BBC Learning

What we do


BBC Learning focuses on three main areas:

  1. We commission programmes with an educational aim
  2. We use these programmes to run campaigns which reach out into the community and create educational experiences
  3. We produce curriculum-based online materials for learners and teachers

Our aim is to 'inspire a life full of learning for everyone'. In practical terms this means creating, connecting and magnifying powerful opportunities for learning across the BBC.

Our priorities are to:

  • Promote learning in school-age children
  • Support the needs of teachers
  • Provide information and advice for parents to support their children's learning
  • Inspire teenagers through their interests outside formal learning
  • Motivate adults to improve their skills
  • Help people to develop the media literacy skills needed in the modern digital world
  • Offer opportunities for learning through active participation
