Lifelong Learning: Raising Standards of Adult Education - 4 November 2020  | Central London

COVID-19 has left 8.4 million people on furlough in the UK and with the threat of a recession looming, it is vital that investment is made in adult learning to upskill individuals and mitigate the number of people left unemployed.

As such, I just want to make you aware of our LifeLong Learning event, which will offer key insights into how you can develop effective training programmes and create a multi-skilled workforce in line with a changing labour market.

Discussion will also be had on how to access funding, whilst learning how to improve adult learning opportunities for those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our events from September onwards are scheduled to go ahead in person as planned. However, we are intently following public health guidelines and if it becomes apparent it is not possible to run these events in person, they will be moved online. In the event that we have to cancel an event (postponements and rescheduling exc.) due to the public health guidelines around Covid-19, we will issue full refunds and/or cancel bookings without charge.
