On Tuesday I was in London to attend the first meeting of the Learning Revolution Third Sector Forum. This group of third sector representatives will feed into the National Advisory Forum, chaired by the Minister Kevin Brennan, which is overseeing the Government’s informal adult learning programme stemming from the white paper ‘The Learning Revolution’. At Tuesday’s meeting we heard updates on all aspects of the Learning Revolution programme, including the £20M Transformation Fund, the development of an online portal for learning opportunities and the forthcoming Festival of Learning which is to take place throughout October. It was a good opportunity to get an overview of the progress of this extensive programme directly from the civil servants from the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills who are leading it.
