This event is now full.

The Local Education Authorities Forum for the Education of Adults (LEAFEA) exists to promote the development of adult learning in and by local authorities in England. Adult learning is seen as a key component of local government agendas to help everyone achieve their potential, to give people a better quality of life, to promote health and well-being, to strengthen communities, assist in providing work and to provide services that meet community needs.

The theme of our autumn conference is adult education, poverty and deprivation. The meeting will explore the contribution that our adult learning services have made, and should further make, to understanding and identifying poverty through our work in communities, and how we can address deprivation.

Open to members of LEAFEA. Interested in becoming a member, please contact the LEAFEA team.
