Leicestershire's Adult Learning Strategy

We want to hear your views on the draft strategy for Leicestershire’s Adult Learning Service 2018-22.

Leicestershire Adult Learning Service (LALS) is an adult and community learning provider that operates across the county. It aims to support people and communities to develop and engage in learning programmes that meet their needs.

It does this by offering a range of accredited and non-accredited learning programmes across over 100 community venues such as libraries and community centres to around 6,000 learners every year. The programmes range from leisure based courses such as pottery, or learning a new language to GCSEs in English and Maths.

It also offers programmes that help to build up people’s confidence to be more ambitious in their learning which can be done in a family group or on an individual basis.

LALS programmes support people to learn new skills and therefore help their job prospects as they move through life.

The strategy, which is called 'Realising Potential', sets out a vision for the service in the future and how it intends to meet its objectives in supporting people to feel confident about learning, achieve their goals and therefore improve their well-being.

We’d like to hear from you if you have any comments on our vision and the draft strategy for our service. For example, we’d like to know:

  • Do you think our vision ‘To inspire and support the people of Leicestershire to improve their lives through lifelong learning’ is right?
  • The strategy shows how it links into a number of other strategies across the County, particularly Leicestershire County Council’s strategic plan. Do you think that this proposed strategic approach is appropriate for the service?
  • The strategy shows how it aims to plan its activity to achieve outcomes for a Strong Economy, Wellbeing and Opportunity, Keeping people safe, and building Great Communities. Do you agree with how LALS plans to organise its activity around these outcomes?
  • What impact, if any, would there be on you and your use of the service?
  • Is there anything else you would like to see reflected in our strategy?

3 April - 31 May 2018

The consultation ran from 3 April to 31 May 2018.
