Personal Education & Skills Accounts: AoC responds

19 March 2019

The Liberal Democrats have released a new report calling for new Personal Education and Skills Accounts as part of the work of the Independent Commission on Lifelong Learning. Association of College's Chief Executive, David Hughes, who sits on the Commission said: “This is a timely and helpful report as the consensus grows from all parts of Westminster and from business that the time has finally come to rebalance the provision of education and skills to create a truly world class post-18 education system. As our country’s skills gaps widen further, and as the world of work continues to change at such a rapid pace, it is right that people are given more control and agency over their training and learning at all stages of their lives – Personal Education and Skills Accounts have the potential to play an important role in this.” You can read the full report and recommendations here.
