National stakeholder groups

On behalf of the Department for Education (DfE), Learning and Work Institute co-ordinates a number of adult education stakeholder policy groups.

  • Local Education Authority Further Education Association (LEAFEA)
  • National Advisory Group on Peer Volunteering and Learning (NAG)
  • National Older Learners’ Group (NOLG)
  • National Forum for Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector Learning and Skills
  • National Family Learning Forum(NFLF) and Family Learning Local Authority Group (FLLAG)
  • Young Adult Carers National Policy Forum (YAC)

Each group has its own Terms of Reference and independent Chair. Together, they encompass a wide range of perspectives from across government departments and from the public, private and third sectors. Their membership includes both organisations that have adult education as their core purpose, and those for which it is a secondary focus.

The groups work through individual network meetings, webinars and cross-group policy roundtables on priority issues.
