National strategy needed for adult education and lifelong learning, new report argues

A new report on adult education and lifelong learning which argues that it must be a permanent national necessity, an inseparable aspect of citizenship and is vital to addressing the huge societal divisions and challenges to democracy we currently face, has been welcomed by the University of Nottingham’s Vice-Chancellor.

The report from the Centenary Commission on Adult Education, which includes two University of Nottingham education experts, calls for:

  • A national adult education and lifelong learning strategy, with a participation target to reduce the gap between the most and least educationally active.
  • A minister with specific responsibility for adult education and lifelong learning to report annually to Parliament on progress.
