Following the first meeting of the Adult Learning Strategic Forum for Scotland (ALSFS), in September, the Adult Learning Strategy Sub-Group set about getting 5 consultative workshops and an adult learning survey underway.
By late-October, the learning survey was up and running (https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/AdultLearningSurvey2019/). This will remain live until at least the end of November, so please encourage and support your learners to participate.
The Strategy Sub-Group would like to thank the partners and colleagues who participated in the recent strategic themed workshops. These were organised around the themes of:
The Adult Learning Offer and Planning Progression
Advice and Guidance
Access, Empowerment and Change
Learning for Work
The rich discussion led to outputs and actions which the Sub-Group are now reviewing. These will be reported to ALSFS when it next meets in December. Although still early in its conception, work around the new Adult Learning Strategy has already gathered momentum and it’s hoped that colleagues and partners are already enjoying a sense of involvement and ownership of the strategy, which is expected in late 2020.
If you haven’t had the chance to input into the strategy yet, further consultation is planned over the coming months for local services, practitioners and learners – dates and locations to follow. We look forward to seeing you there.
