Further education colleges have a vital role to play in bringing digital
skills qualifications up to date to boost computer literacy, a group of
Lords has heard.
​ ​
The House of Lords digital skills committee heard *the adult skills budget
(ASB) was being spent on the “wrong sort of IT”* from a panel of expert
witnesses on Tuesday (October 14).

The committee, chaired by Lady Morgan of Huyton, is taking evidence on the
digital capability of the nation.
​ ​
Karen Price OBE, chief executive e-skills UK, the sector skills council for
business and information technology, told the committee: “We need to look
very seriously at the role of FE colleges and what they can contribute.”
