Learning and Work calls for everyone to have access to a Personal Learning Account, giving them a funded entitlement to spend on any approved learning, a record of their achievement, and access to advice and guidance to help them make informed choices.
Learning is central to a fair and prosperous society. The links between learning throughout life and national prosperity, business success, societal
cohesion, and individual opportunity and life chances are clear and well established. Learning helps you earn more, live healthier and play a fuller
role in society.
It is equally well established that the UK’s skills base lags behind many comparator countries and that participation in learning is unequal. Active intervention is needed at national and local level to address this.
