I am sure the Mayor believes that everyone has a right to learn and improve themselves. So, what efforts is he taking to ensure adult education and lifelong learning continue to play a vibrant role within London?

A broad review of Adult and Community Learning in London took place as part of the recent government led skills area review process.  Building on this work, I am now co-investing with the four sub-regional partnerships in a closer analysis of how this provision can best serve the needs of London's adult learning cohort at the local level. I am also lobbying government to ensure that London's funding settlement for the devolved Adult Education Budget to City Hall in 2019/20 is no less than current levels.
