Centenary Commission launched

Skills for Life Network

A commission has been launched to consider the challenges England faces in educating people throughout their lives, 100 years on from the publication of the Report on Adult Education which concluded that lifelong learning opportunities are key to the country’s future.

The Centenary Commission aims to stimulate a national debate about the role of adult education, and to “rebalance and enhance provision for adults”. It will consider:

  • Globalisation and the future of work
  • Civic engagement and democracy
  • Inequality and social mobility
  • Communities, migration and identities
  • Demography and ageing

The Centenary Commission is formed by the Universities of Nottingham and Oxford, the Workers Educational Association, the Co-operative College and the Raymond Williams Foundation, and will publish its report in November 2019.
