Cutting adult learning

A debate is taking place today (Wednesday) at Westminster Hall on the cuts to the adult learning budget.

Every year colleges educate over three million people, over two million of them adults in further education either learning skills for the first time or taking part in professional development.

UNISON believes that tackling inequality, unemployment and in-work poverty requires significant state support and skills investment.

But significant and sustained cuts to the core adult skills budget will make it difficult to improve standards despite the fact that better skill levels, and the pay premium that they bring, will create significant benefits to the individual, the exchequer and the country.
