We chat with Dr Susan Pember, Director of Policy at HOLEX about her four pressing issues that the UK faces, which adult education and training can help resolve.

She left the stage after rousing applause for highlighting, to SFA and EFA Chief Peter Lauener, her views on the current Apprenticeship end point assessments. She commented during the Q&A 'It's morally wrong to start an apprentice on a programme when you don’t know how they are going to be tested at the end".
