RSCs sign BIS pledge on informal adult learning

The nine JISC Regional Support Centres in England, have joined other national and regional organisations which have signed the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (DBIS) pledge to signal their intent to play a role in bringing the vision for informal adult learning to life. The pledge is a commitment by organisations that they will be important ambassadors and advocates for learning and a key driver for change and innovation on the ground.

Department for Business Innovation and Skills

Specifically we will aim to:

* support the core principles of informal learning and encourage others to sign up
* advocate wider participation, especially for those who have benefited least from learning
* find flexible ways of using our existing spaces, or opening up new spaces, for learning
* encourage and support learning organised by people for themselves
* embrace new ways of learning, including the use of technology and broadcasting
* find and work with new partners to increase learning opportunities
* celebrate our successes
