A new report out on provision in England looking at the data available and making recommendations for government, local government and adult community education providers.
Very interesting set of recommendations, including –
Establish a branded adult education centre in every
town. Planning rules should promote multi-use
community centres which can be used as outreach
posts for adult education.
As well as these main centres, create a network of adult
education centres which are co-located with other
services, for example, adult education with libraries and
the arts, social housing and learning centres, early years
settings for family learning and schools and colleges for
evening adult education classes.
