The ILA programme is now closed and we shall not be accepting further bookings of learning. We are continuing to log details of complaints and will follow these up.

Our commitment to adult learning remains cast iron and the Secretary of State has already said that this is not the end of Government funding for adult learning, or of Government support for those who find a lack of money a barrier to returning to education, learning or training. We are developing future plans for a successor ILA-style scheme which build on the successful elements of the ILA programme.
