The Education Committee will question academics and policy experts in the first oral evidence session of its inquiry into adult skills and lifelong learning.

The Committee’s inquiry is examining the benefits of adult education for social justice and upskilling workers, as well as the role of local authorities and lessons the UK can learn from abroad.
