Features of good practice in adult and community learning have been identified by the Community Education Development Centre.
This is the latest release
They identified five key areas that should be addressed to ensure functional and effective provision:
- access (eg. physical access, signposting, times and forms of activities, etc)
- lifelong Education (eg. access to retraining, alternative skills, etc) Interagency collaboration (eg. pooling resources and expertise, etc)
- relevant curriculum (eg. programmes that meet the needs of the learner)
- governance (eg. participation by learners in the management of provision) (CEDC AMA, 1991).
This report seeks to review each of these issues in terms of current service delivery arrangements within local authorities, draw conclusions, and recommend improvements.
