The Flexible Learning Fund has been created to support projects that deliver learning to adults in work or returning to work with low or intermediate level skills in ways that are flexible and easy to access. The Fund has been designed to test different approaches to learning and will provide important evidence on what works, and what does not, in engaging adults with learning.

Getting assessment right is critical at all stages of the learning journey. These guidelines for assessment and tracking in maths and English were co-created with the sector. They set out clear expectations of effective practice in assessment for learning, providing a framework for organisations as well as individual teachers and trainers.
