30 April 2015

President Jonathan Michie has responded to a feature in Times Higher Education (“Answers for everything”23 April), in which the scaling-back or closure of every continuing education department in the UK was referred to. In his letter, Jonathan Michie states that “The next government should reverse the policies that have undermined part-time students, adult learners and lifelong learning. People should be encouraged to study new subjects; the ELQ policy must go. And age discrimination should cease.” Read the letter in full.
