Although the consultation doesn't close until 31st October, we're aware that the earlier ideas and comments are made, the more time officials at BIS (the Department of Business Innovation & Skills) will have to consider them as they prepare proposals.
The government also would like to know the views of learners, tutors and the general public on adult learning through a short online survey. The WEA is encouraging everyone to express their views by completing the short NIACE online survey by 31 October 2011. The survey is aimed at current learners as well as people who are not currently learning. You can access the survey by clicking on the link below
Following this consultation, the government will publish their plans for Informal Adult and Community Learning (IACL) later in the autumn.
