On Friday afternoon I was at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to take part in the Informal Adult Learning Partner Communications Group meeting. We focussed in particular on the two formal consultations recently launched by BIS, ‘Skills for Sustainable Growth’ and ‘A Simplified Further Education and Skills Funding System and Methodology’, identifying those sections of both consultations that are of particular relevance to informal adult and community learning and agreeing to encourage as wide a response as possible from our various networks. The skills consultation is available to read at: http://www.bis.gov.uk/skills-consultation and the Further Education and Skills Funding is available at  http://www.bis.gov.uk/FE-funding-consultation. The deadline for responses to both consultations is 14 October and it is worth noting that you can comment online on particular sections of the consultations if you don’t want to submit a full formal response.
