Adult Education Budget Consultation 2021-22

 

You still have time to have your say on improvements to Adult Education in our live consultation. If you have already taken part, thank you and if not, we would be delighted if you could share your views via consultation survey by 10am on March 15.

 

The Consultation

 

We are keen that local residents, businesses, colleges and other stakeholders get to share their views on how we best use the Adult Education Budget. We have launched a consultation on additional policy changes, which follows the consultation we launched at a similar time last year.

Proposed changes are outlined within the following consultation questions, and we welcome any feedback from our providers, stakeholders, and local residents to inform our thinking as we continue to reform and shape the delivery of AEB in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Responses from this consultation will be used to support the ongoing development of our long-term vision for skills, the AEB funding rules and and the new Economic Growth and Skills Strategy which is due to be published early this year.  You have until 15th March 2022 to send us your feedback. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Thank you

Parminder Singh Garcha, Senior Responsible Officer, Adult Education Budget.

Supporting People with Cancer in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Local community development organisation, Cambridgeshire ACRE, is working on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support to understand the needs and experiences of community groups and organisations in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough who may be called upon to support people affected by cancer.

We know that those who run local community groups and organisations are sometimes asked to provide support either to individuals affected by cancer or to their families/carers. Cambridgeshire ACRE is undertaking some research on Macmillan’s behalf to understand the type of support groups are asked to provide, where they get their support from and whether they would be interested in future training or advice from Macmillan to allow their group or organisation to better support people affected by cancer.

Please spare 10 minutes to complete this short online survey.

Thank you so much for your support with this important work. The survey will remain available to complete until the end of the March.

If you have any queries please email alison.brown@cambsacre.org.uk or call her on 01353 865029.
