This was probably the first government report anywhere about adult education to be based
on serious empirical research. It shaped the field in Britain, and is recognised as a landmark
across the world. In Britain, the centenary is providing an opportunity for new thinking about
“the provision for, and possibilities of” adult education – looking at the century ahead.
This conference is an opportunity for adult educators and scholars to join a global reflection
on what the field has achieved across the world over the past century, on where we are
now, and on how adult education should be “reconstructed” for the century ahead.
Nottingham is an excellent location for such a conversation. It is, of course, renowned for
Robin Hood, a source of popular education for 800 years – a metaphor for social welfare,
taking from the rich of the city to give to the poor. It was in Nottingham that, in 1798, Samuel
Fox and William Singleton set up what is widely regarded as the first Adult School.
The University of Nottingham’s roots can be found in university extension courses for adults.
As William Gladstone, the dominant British statesman of his age – four times Prime Minister
– proclaimed when laying the University’s foundation stone: “every human being” should
make education “a lifelong process”. It reacted quickly to the 1919 Ministry of Reconstruction
Report – becoming the first British university to set up a department of adult education. In
1923 it became the first university in the world to establish a Chair in Adult Education.
