Could 'Virtual Vouchers' replace evening classes?

The idea of switching money from traditional evening classes to "virtual vouchers" was floated by the Government today

The idea of switching money from traditional evening classes to "virtual vouchers"-which would enable adults to fund their own informal learning- was floated by the Government today.


The consultation on informal adult learning, or learning for which the gaining of qualifications is not the main purpose, argues that developments such as this could be necessary if Government support for this education is to reflect the growing demands from learners. Many people are now making better use of the internet, other new technologies and the voluntary sector rather than traditional classroom based education.
