Further Education and Training Act 2007

Young people’s learning committee and adult learning committee

41.Section 5 removes the duty on the LSC to establish a young people’s learning committee and an adult learning committee, but the LSC retains its general power under paragraph 1(1)(b) of Schedule 3 to the 2000 Act to establish such committees as it thinks fit. This will give the LSC flexibility to establish committees to consider different issues as and when needed. For example, the LSC may establish a single group advising it on the needs of young learners, adults and the workforce as a whole.
