Former Universities Minister Rt Hon Chris Skidmore MP has launched a new Lifelong Education Commission under his Chairmanship at ResPublica. The Commission will last 18 months and will finish in July 2022.
The Commission will seek to recommend how the multiple and varied barriers to lifelong learning can be removed, what future investment is needed to support this, and what regulatory change is needed to ensure the maximum possible flexibility that will benefit learners and deliver on the promise of a whole system change for education post-18.
The commission will focus on how post-18 education and skills ought to be designed so that both Higher and Further Education institutions are valued, but also how the individual learner can be better empowered to make decisions and undertake their learning. Lessons can be learnt from abroad, as well as from mistakes made in the past, but post-Covid, the need to act differently for different outcomes will be essential.
Some of the issues we will address include the following:
42 Tavistock Street
London WC2E 7PB
020 3857 8310
