On Wednesday morning I was at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills in London to meet Stuart Edwards. Stuart is Deputy Director of the Quality Improvement Division at BIS and is responsible for the Department’s informal adult and community learning reforms which will consider how the £210m Adult Safeguarded Learning budget can best deliver the vision set out in the Government’s Skills for Sustainable Growth white paper. They will also look more broadly at how to create the conditions that will promote and support the vision for informal adult an community learning set out in Skills for Sustainable Growth. Stuart and I talked about the important contribution of the voluntary arts sector to informal adult and community learning and discussed how the contribution voluntary arts groups might make to joining up informal adult learning within communities.
