Adult Education: Oxfordshire

Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many adult learner accounts have been taken up in Oxfordshire since September. (167173)

As of 22 November 2007 a total of 791 adult learner accounts had been opened by learners in the trial LSC areas of the South East and East Midlands: 38 of these were opened by individuals in Oxfordshire.

As outlined in “World Class Skills: Implementing the Leitch Review of Skills in England” (July 07), the evaluation of these trials will inform the development of Skills Accounts to give adult learners greater choice, purchasing power and control over their learning, and to drive forward the implementation of demand-led funding within further education.
