The place of regions in promoting adult learning and skills

 

 

Thursday 15 March 2007

The MegaCentre

Bernard Road

Sheffield S2 5BQ

 

 

 

The English regions share common features.  They also differ in
significant ways and have diverse geographical, demographic and economic
profiles.  There are also huge inequalities in wealth and poverty,
opportunities and aspirations within and between regions.  The
government and many national organisations, including the Learning and
Skills Council, have established regional offices and agencies charged
with overseeing developments to respond to the particular needs of each
region. 

 

The past ten years have seen much debate about devolution and
decentralisation in the United Kingdom.  Powers have already been
devolved to Scotland and Wales, and London has an elected mayor.  There
has been a referendum for a regional assembly in the North East.
Conversely, local government powers and autonomy have eroded during the
same period. This is now being challenged through debates about city
regions, double devolution and local government reform. The recent
Leitch report has implications for the role of Regional Development
Agencies and economic advancement and social inclusion in the regions.

 

What does all this mean for lifelong and life wide learning?  

Can the regions make a difference to people, economies and the
environment?  

Do they add value to national or local dimensions?

 

The conference aims to:

provide an opportunity to learn about regionalisation and regional value
in planning, organising and funding life wide learning

provide a forum to debate the value of the regional approaches to
learning for adults

showcase effective practice developed in the English regions

 

This conference will be relevant to all those with responsibility for or
an interest in policy, planning, funding, or managing any form of
learning for adults.

 

Arrival and Registration is at 9.45am and ends with tea at 3.30pm
