Introduction, Council Chair - John Graystone
We now find ourselves in a new landscape that is characterised by economic recession, constraints on public spending and uncertainty about future funding. This means that there is additional pressure on our resources. The labour market is changing fast in Wales and there is a need for people to learn new skills, particularly those associated with digital technologies.
Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales is well placed to build on the legacy of its founding organisations and will promote abroad liberal education which improves social justice and community engagement, alongside offering highly focused education and training services for employability, enterprise and skills development. The provision of learning, skills and prosperity for the people of Wales will,most importantly, require a commitment to democratic citizenship,inclusiveness, cultural enrichment, health and well-being, equalities and social justice.
