Taking on board local learning needs

At the Burgess Hall, St Ives on 14 January, over 150 people took part in the last round of consultation towards the Learning and Skills Council's (LSC) three-year strategic plan for Cambridgeshire.

The draft plan lays out the LSC's targets and priorities for action to provide high quality post-16 learning for local people.

Some lively discussion took place as delegates met in small groups to look at the detail, making a key contribution to the LSC's development of its final plan. Delegates reminded the LSC of the importance of taking full account of local employment needs, as well as championing lifelong learning for all, whether or not this involves recognised qualifications.

Reflecting on the points raised, Learning and Skills Council Cambridgeshire's Chair, Sal Brinton said, "Our role is a influencing and strategic one and we rely on our partners to work closely with us to deliver this plan. This is why the comments we receive now are so essential, as is the support of our partners as we implement the plan itself, from April 2002 onwards.

"We fully recognise that, while we have a duty to contribute to the meeting of national learning targets, this can only be done by addressing local issues and ensuring that local people can access the learning they want and deserve.

"Our draft plan includes milestones by which local people can judge the success of what we do. These are key measures that we expect to be judged by over the years ahead."

All residents of Peterborough and Cambridgeshire are invited to comment on the draft strategic plan, which has been distributed to training organisations, Councils, businesses, voluntary and other organisations throughout the area.

A copy of the plan can be found on the LSC's website at www.lsc.gov.uk/cambridgeshire or by calling Jane Lewis on 01733 894238. 

Comments on the plan are sought by letter or email and should be sent for the attention of Maggie Magennis at Learning and Skills Council Cambridgeshire, St John's Street, Peterborough PE1 5DD; email: maggie.magennis:lsc.gov.uk before noon on 1 February 2002.
