Are you passionate about improving adult skills?
The demands of the modern UK workplace and the current economic crisis mean that adult learning is increasingly crucial for people of all ages, regardless of their level of skills and qualifications.
Did you know that ...
· one in five adults lack functional English or maths.
· longer working lives and frequent career changes mean regular upskilling is a necessity.
· rapid developments in technology require us all to keep acquiring new knowledge.
· automation means reskilling and redeployment are the only options for many.
