Researchers to tackle issue of adult education in austere times
Within this press release, Dr Nalita James from the Vaughan Centre for Lifelong Learning, and SCUTREA Council Member, stated that: ‘the lack of government investment in adult education has come at a time when the UK has an ageing population and people have extended working lives. In addition, the introduction of tuition fees in higher education has led to a major decline in mature student numbers, especially in part-time provision. The conference is timely, exploring how investment in adult education can support a stronger economy, promote social mobility and well-being, and offer those with the greatest need, opportunities to contribute to society.’
