A new independent policy and research organisation dedicated to lifelong learning, full employment and inclusion.
We research what works, develop new ways of thinking and implement new approaches. Working with partners, we transform people’s experiences of learning and employment. What we do benefits individuals, families, communities and the wider economy.
We bring together over 90 years of combined history and heritage from the ‘National Institute of Adult Continuing Education’ and the ‘Centre for Economic & Social Inclusion’.
