Full Time and Part Time Adult Skills Learners – Enrolments (Updated In-Year)

Our enrolment into adult education programmes is continuing to rise at a similar rate to the previous year, with enrolment on these programmes continuing throughout the academic year and currently slightly higher. Working in partnership with the West Midlands Combined Authority we have introduced new fully funded programmes to allow adults to retrain into priority sectors which we expect will see a further rise in adult participation. We are also very proud to run a number of programmes in partnership with local employers aimed at supporting adults directly into work.
