Learning for Life: A new framework for adult skills

16 March 2007. There is widespread agreement that the further education system should be more ‘demand led’, but whose demands are we talking about? In this report Simone Delorenzi argues that adult learners themselves should be in the driving seat, with flexible entitlements to courses and financial support that is available to every adult learner but targeted at those who need it most. She argues that colleges should have more autonomy and that local authorities should have a bigger role in coordinating provision. By Simone Delorenzi
