Adult Education APPG

Skills for an Economy in Transition

White Paper preview

This preview is being made available to attendees of the Adult Education APPG Meeting to be held at 2:30pm, 13th June, 2023.

At the upcoming meeting of the Adult Education APPG we will be presenting our White Paper developed in partnership with Learning and Work Institute as part of our VocTech Challenge: Skills for an Economy in Transition.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to explore our research findings and discuss the commitments we set out in the White Paper to drive a step-change in the levels of adult participation in learning across the UK.

"At a time of skills shortage and rapid economic transition, it is essential that everyone in the UK has the opportunity to develop the skills they need.

By getting adults learning, including those currently not well served by mainstream provision, we will create the foundation for secure and equitable economic growth that gives everyone in the UK the capacity to thrive."

The finished White Paper will be launched to the public on the 20th June. We would ask you not to share the document before this time.
