GE17 Manifestos: Adult Education


Over three successive days this week, the Labour Party, Liberal Democrats and Conservative Party have all launched their General Election manifestos. Each spells out the main promises and pledges that the party would deliver if elected.

We have examined the three manifestos to highlight the sections that relate most directly to adult education. All three parties mention adult education or lifelong learning directly and have a range of policies on related areas such as Further Education, Higher Education and Apprenticeships.
