The Government is to unveil new plans for a successor to the controversial
Individual Learning Account Scheme (ILA) in June this year.
The ILA programme was suspended by the then Education and Skills Secretary,
Estelle Morris on 7 December 2001, amid concerns that some learning providers
were abusing it.
John Harwood, chief executive of the Learning and Skills Council, unveiled
the plans for a revamped version of the ILAs during an online question and
answer session on the council’s website last week.
