New £2.25m adult education fund to 'build big society through learning'
Voluntary sector organisations are being invited to apply for a share of a £2.25m grant fund to support educational projects for adults in England.
The Adult and Community Learning Fund from the government’s Skills Funding Agency, which is being administered by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education, will give grants ranging from £10,000 to £75,000 to support "informal adult and community learning".
The website says the fund aims to build the big society through learning, and to engage and motivate disadvantaged groups. It says it is particularly interested in bids from organisations that are collaborating on projects. Initiatives will need to start by 1 September 2011 and end by 31 March 2012.
Applications for grants must be submitted by noon on Friday 10th June 2011. The application form can be downloaded from the NIACE site.
