Supporting Adult Learners


From the Executive Summary of 'Learning to Succeed' proposals:

The Learning and Skills Council will work with others to champion lifelong learning for all. The Council will have a clear role to play in driving up demand for learning so as to complement the impact of individual learning accounts and the UfI and support the work of NIACE, the Campaign for Learning and broadcasters in promoting learning throughout life. The Learning and Skills Council will work closely with the UfI to improve the overall coherence and responsiveness of education and training provision for adults and embed lifelong learning in people’s daily lives. It will have a responsibility for funding high quality information, advice and guidance for adults, working closely with the UfI’s Learning Direct national helpline and a national duty to secure adult and community learning provision, to which local authorities will have the duty to contribute.

We also propose a more integrated service for unemployed people, by transferring responsibility for work based learning for adults from TECs to the Employment Service from April 2001, so that it becomes part of a coherent set of programmes, alongside the New Deals and the new ONE service for benefit claimants.
