Improvements needed to Medway's adult education

An invaluable service that's under threat with funding for adult and community learning uncertain, Medway Liberal Democrats believe Medway's adult education service requires improvement to help more people take advantage.
Martin Rose, Liberal Democrat Candidate for Watling Ward states "Many people in Medway are looking for access to adult education to improve their job prospects and quality of life. We would seek to widen the range of subjects on offer, make learning more affordable and improve the choice of courses available at evenings and the weekend to help working people, parents and carers."
We would provide a wider range of vocational courses, reverse cuts to the foreign language courses on offer and offer more subjects in the evenings and at weekends to help working people, carers and parents and provide a more flexible system of financial support. The wider good that comes from community learning is hard to measure, or over-emphasise, adult education impacts so many areas of a person's life. It can build skills to find work, improve health and well-being, and provide the getup-and-go you need to make a contribution in today's fast-paced world.
