Lifelong Learing;In brief

21st May 1999 at 01:00
A citizens' jury formed part of a "Learning Festival" in Glasgow last week. For four days the jury of 16, drawn from residents of different ages, sexes and work status, listened to testimony on the state of lifelong learning in the city. Its conclusions have been submitted to the commissioner, the Glasgow Development Agency.

Witnesses included Stephanie Young, the GDA's director of lifelong learning, Tom Wilson, the principal of Glasgow College of Building and Printing and head of the Glasgow Telecolleges Network, and Alastair Struthers, headteacher of Lochend Community School. The GDA will respond next month to the jury's recommendations on how best to develop learning in Glasgow.
