Life-wide Learning (LWL) refers to student learning in real contexts and authentic settings. Such experiential learning enables students to achieve certain learning goals that are more difficult to attain through classroom learning alone. It helps students to achieve the aims of whole-person development and enables them to develop the life-long learning capabilities that are needed in our ever-changing society.

Other Learning Experiences (OLE)
Under the NSS Curriculum, OLE is one of the three components that complement the core and elective subjects (including Applied Learning courses) for the whole-person development of students. Building on the foundation of the five Essential Learning Experiences in the Basic Education (Primary 1 - Secondary 3), schools will offer students a range of OLE opportunities encouraging them to participate in the five areas of OLE, namely Moral and Civic Education, Community Service, Career-related Experiences, Aesthetic Development and Physical Development.


Learning Objectives and Expected Outcomes of Other Learning Experiences (OLE)
In implementing Other Learning Experiences, teachers need to keep the following aims and expected outcomes in mind:
  • To widen students' horizons, and to develop their life-long interests;
  • To nurture positive values and attitudes; and
  • To provide students with a broad and balanced curriculum with essential learning experiences alongside the core and elective components (including Applied Learning (ApL) courses) in order to nurture the five essential Chinese virtues, 'Ethics, Intellect, Physical Development, Social Skills and Aesthetics' (德、智、體、羣、美)
  • To facilitate students' all-round development as life-long learners with a focus on sustainable capacities, the expected outcomes include:
    • - becoming active, informed and responsible citizens;
    • - developing respect for plural values and interests in the arts;
    • - adopting a healthy lifestyle; and
    • - enhancing career aspirations and positive work ethics.

The above diagram shows that life-wide learning for the five essential learning experiences can take place outside the school in different contexts, and different organisations may offer related learning opportunities.
