Learning providers to rethink courses

Two-thirds of learning providers are considering changing their
practice and range of courses because of the national strategy for
neighbourhood renewal, according to a report by the Learning and
Skills Development Agency.

The study finds that most providers want to broaden the range of
courses they offer to attract “hard to reach” groups. But few
providers are offering the full range of skills needed by
residents, community leaders and practitioners involved in
regeneration, it says.

Author Sue Taylor said learning providers needed to know their
communities well, have strong management and delivery structures,
and adequate resources to be successful.
