The Centre for Lifelong Learning (CLL) was established on February 15, 2006, with the objective of providing training for adult learners in the areas of expertise in the Institute. The CLL was earlier known as Department of Extra Mural Studies, which was established in 1981.
It caters to two kinds of adult learners: (a) The Professional groups getting trained for their continuing education and (b) the general population from diverse backgrounds who are outside the formal education system or those who have not had the opportunity to access formal education system and want to access training or goal-oriented short-term vocational programmes.
By promoting the philosophy of lifelong learning, the CLL would maximise the capacities and potential of adult learners to contribute meaningfully as citizens to create a society that promotes and protects the values of dignity, equity, social justice and human rights.

The CLL is part of the Joint Action Committee (JAC), Maharashtra, which has been set up to advocate for the implementation of policies and programmes formulated by the Central Government which remain on paper. These policies include the National Policy on Older Persons (NPOP), 1999; Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007; and the Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme, 2007.
About Centre For Lifelong Learning's Collaborations: Since 2010, it has been a strategy of the Centre to offer courses in collaboration so as to reach out to larger number of students across the country with quality programmes. The partnerships have brought wide-ranging and varied benefits to both partners. These benefits include supporting curriculum development and enhancement and support to teaching and staff development as well as to skill development through practicums and field placements.
We also expect that they have offered greater opportunities to students in terms of enhanced and varied programmes,developing vocational competence and professional confidence and improved employability skills and opportunities. It is significant that our courses reach out to adult learners who are often in the world of work or are seeking to enter employment.
Through the Memorandum of Understanding which we enter into with our partner,we seek to ensure that the course will run with requisite rigour and quality. As far as possible we would like to think that the student experience will be complimentary with the vision and mission of TISS.
