Adult skills: Two mature students study in a libraryOpportunity to inform the evidence base on the benefits of adult skills and lifelong learning.

The House of Commons Education Committee has launched a new inquiry to explore and surface the benefits of adult skills and lifelong learning to the individual, society and the wider economy. The inquiry will also explore the level of support available to learners and the role played by local authorities/combined authority areas in providing adult education. The Committee has published its call for evidence and invites written submissions from all interested individuals and organisations.

Relevant questions that could be informed by longitudinal evidence include:

  • What are the benefits of adult skills and lifelong learning for productivity and upskilling the workforce?
  • What are the benefits of adult skills and lifelong learning for social justice, health and well-being?
  • Who currently participates in and benefits from lifelong learning?
  • What lessons can the UK learn from abroad?

The deadline for written evidence submissions is Thursday 15 August 2019.

For more information, take a look at the Education Committee page.

You can have your say by responding to the call for evidence. Submit your written evidence via the online form.
