Hastings & Rother Adult Learning and Skills Strategy
Hastings and Rother variously encompass high deprivation, low adult educational attainment and aspirations, rural isolation and an ageing population, and have suffered from these effects as seriously as everywhere else. At a time of greater demand, there are fewer resources available to provide support.
The Strategic Priorities for the Hastings and Rother area contained in this strategy are to:
- Ensure that the local learning and skills offer meets the current and future skills needs of local employers
- Ensure that community based and non-accredited learning is improved and enhanced, recognising its importance to social and economic inclusion across the Hastings and Rother area
- Build relevant, clear and effective local pathways from non-accredited learning through and to higher education and/or employment
- Maximise the funding which flows into the area to support local education, skills and employment priorities and actions within this strategy
