Bodies get closer to improve post-16 education

Two
major government bodies have agreed to work more closely together to improve
the quality of post-16 learning and education.

The
Local Government Association (LGA) and the Learning and Skills Council (LSC)
have signed a deal to work in partnership for the first time.

The
‘memorandum of understanding’ sets out the deal, which will see the two
organisations working on projects that will provide structured training for
post-16 learners.

The
agreement will also ensure local education authorities and the network of 47
local LSCs are more integrated and communicate more effectively.
