The Changing Face of Community Adult Education in the East Midlands: Implications for Adult and Higher Education

This free workshop provides an opportunity to reflect on what communities in the East Midlands need and what kinds of response is required from the education system – especially from universities, colleges, and adult education organisations such as the WEA.

  • What kind of work should adult and higher education organisations be doing with the communities of the East Midlands?
  • How should they do it?
  • What lessons are there to be learned from past experience?

 

Colin Kirkwood will reflect on a lifetime of community education that began in a mining town in the East Midlands, but took him on to continuing engagement – over five decades – with adult education in deprived communities in Glasgow and Edinburgh.


There has been a lot of talk recently about the meeting the needs of “left behind” areas. Important reports – from the Civic University Commission, the Centenary Commission on Adult Education, and the Independent Inquiry into Lifelong Learning, among others – have been heavily critical of the destruction of educational provision for adults, especially in disadvantaged areas. Research shows there is a strong “Matthew effect” in adult learning: an intensifying division between those who get the benefits of education and those excluded. John Holford will explain the work of the Centenary Commission on Adult Education.
