Lifelong Learning UK Scotland publish report on the sector working together as 'one system'

Lifelong Learning UK Scotland has published a new report on the seminar which took place at the Scottish Parliament in November 2009. The event brought together employers from all six sub-sectors of lifelong learning, and discussions focussed on how the lifelong learning sector can work better as 'one system' in accordance with Skills for Scotland: a Lifelong Skills Strategy.

This new publication provides key recommendations on improving collaborative working throughout the sector to create a simpler, more accessible learning system which will benefit everyone living and working in Scotland.  The report includes practical recommendations on how this agenda can be progressed.  These include: placing the learner at the centre of services via schemes such as the National Entitlement Card; enabling more collaborative working by adjusting funding structures; developing and sharing templates for collaboration; increasing the number of secondments across the sub-sectors; improving leadership practices; fully embracing the SCQF (Scottish Qualifications and Credit Framework) and designing the complexities out of the system over the next 15 years.
