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.”
