Have your say on a Strategy for Adult Learning for Scotland

The Strategic Forum for Adult Learning supports Statement of Ambition for Adult Learning. Scotland’s Learning Partnership, Learning Link Scotland and Workers’ Educational Association are all members of the Forum and have been tasked in building a common understanding and co-ordinated approach to scope out the development of a strategy for adult learning in Scotland.

Our starting point is to consider the three core principles:

  • Learning should be lifelong, beginning in the Early Years, supported by Curriculum for Excellence through Broad General Education and Senior Phase and covering the whole age span of post-compulsory education. It should take into account the specific difficulties that some adults have in accessing learning opportunities because of their age, abilities, cultural or social backgrounds.
  • Adult learning should be life-wide. It should cover the personal, work, family and community aspects of living which gives the scope for building a wide and open curriculum and creates a learning continuum which is not restricted by vocational imperatives.
  • Adult learning should be learner-centred. The educational process must build around the interests and motives of the learner and seek to fulfil the purposes and goals he or she sees as relevant and important.
