learning and skills sector

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

One of several terms used to describe the post‐compulsory sector of education and training which covers all provision except that offered by universities and other institutions of higher education. The sector is best defined as that covered by the remit of the Learning and Skills Council, and is therefore wider than that traditionally covered by the term ‘further education’, since it also includes sixth form provision and adult education. It is a terminology not in use in Scotland.

Subjects: Education.
