Adult education

This policy paper aligns with the Opportunity England recommendation, 'a curriculum for all'.

These recommendations would significantly enhance the effectiveness and reach of adult education, addressing key challenges of funding, accessibility and bureaucratic complexity. By doing so, they align with the Opportunity England vision of a more inclusive and equitable education system. They aim to increase participation, especially among underrepresented groups, and ensure that adult education is adaptable, relevant and responsive to the diverse needs of adult learners. This approach would contribute to building a more skilled workforce, bridging skill gaps, and promoting lifelong learning, ultimately leading to greater economic and personal growth across the nation.
