Adult learning 

Cuts to funding by the Skills Funding Agency will bring an end to low cost learning opportunities for people in receipt of means tested benefits such as Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit. Job Seekers Allowance will be the only qualifying benefit from September 2011. This action will exclude disabled, long term sick, lone parents and many others who cannot afford the full cost of a course from accessing learning which could improve their prospects of returning to work.
