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.

Get involved in planning mental health services for children and young people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

There will be a new Children and Young People’s mental health strategy for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough from April 2022. This will be a plan which tells us how services and projects will help children and young people aged 0 to 25 who have mental health problems. The strategy will be owned and shared by the Children and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Board as part of the wider mental health system.

An organisation called taproot is running discussion events to engage local people with deciding the priorities of the strategy. The events are open to professionals, service leads, parents/carers and young people (as long as they are appropriately supported to take part by an accompanying adult). Attendees will be sent relevant information before they come. To book tickets, follow the booking links in the table below.
