  • Asked by: Stephanie Callaghan, MSP for Uddingston and Bellshill, Scottish National Party
  • Date lodged: 9 May 2022
  • Current status: Initiated by the Scottish Government. Answered by Jamie Hepburn on 10 May 2022


To ask the Scottish Government how it is committed to supporting adult learners.


I am pleased to announce that Scotland’s first Adult Learning Strategy has been published today, and can be found online here:

The strategy has bold and ambitious actions to remove barriers to learning, enabling more adults across Scotland to begin and continue their learning journeys. It outlines important steps required to create more accessible learning opportunities for our adult learners, particularly those experiencing disadvantage and furthest from learning.

The publication of the strategy deepens collaboration with adult learners to address and tackle the inequalities that many face. Our aim is to ensure that learners are at the centre of the strategy’s delivery as we work with them to realise their ambitions and aspirations.
