Cheshire East to trial new adult education scheme

First published in

RESIDENTS will soon be able to have a much greater say on which adult learning courses are on offer in their community after Cheshire East was chosen to trial a new Government scheme.

The authority has teamed up with Cheshire West and Chester Council on a successful bid to trial the Government’s community learning trust initiative.

Community Learning in Cheshire (CLiC) is one of only 15 projects given the green light out of 78 entries nationally.

The one-year pilot will see people in the borough decide what area of learning is most relevant to their own communities.

Clr Hilda Gaddum, Cabinet member in charge of children and family services, said: “This new partnership will give more people the opportunity to learn and let communities decide what is important to them.

“Learning should be available to everyone, regardless of age, and I hope that people across Cheshire East get involved with this new project.”
