@HOLEXPolicy have responded to @GillianKeegan's letter of 23 March 2020 which set out the government’s response to COVID-19 in relation to the Adult Community Education (grant funded) providers and independent / private providers: Gillian Keegan,Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Apprenticeship and Skills,Department for Education,Sanctuary Buildings,20 Great Smith Street,LONDON,SW1P 3BT
HOLEX is delighted that Sue Pember has been recognised for her work in adult education. Sue has been our Policy Director for four years and has worked relentlessly on behalf of the sector and the adult learner. She is seen as a sector leader in adult and further education and gives her time freely to mentor and support service and college leaders.
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. We caught up with Susan just after her speech at the AELP annual conference. 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".
FE Adviser Susan Pember outlines the future challenges and opportunities for Apprenticeship providers at the AELP 2013 annual conference. Funding is very tight, but skilling the UK's work force is essential. Therefore it is a very good time to be an Apprenticeship provider, particularly if you are delivery high quality provision, according to Susan.She says Apprenticeship providers should keep an eye on the future, and think about what raising the participation age could mean for them and the needs of the overseas workforce. Susan also highlights how far the UK Apprenticeship system has progressed, citing an employer and colleague who for years believed Germany's Apprenticeship model was the best but is now advocating the UK's system.Click on the video below to hear what Susan has to say:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIENqkkocP0
