Conference in July 09Posted: January 2, 2009
New! 02.01.09 Those interested in the place of the arts and crafts in the future of adult education, may like to note that there’s to be a conference in Stoke-on-Trent. Towards a New Agenda for Lifelong Learning will be at Staffordshire University in July 2009.
Context: adult education in England & Wales has lost over 1.5 million course places in the last three years alone. In 2006 the two large colleges serving Stoke-on-Trent together announced a massive 205 staff redundancies, largely as a result of the government’s drastic cuts to adult education and evening-classes.
