Research paper linking to Investing in Skills: Taking forward the Skills Strategy The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) welcomes this report into the practices and approaches taken to charging fees in further education. The findings reflect the initial research carried out in this area and these should be helpful during the LSC’s consultation on future fee policy. The consultation was launched on 15 July 2004 by the publication of Investing in Skills: taking forward the Skills Strategy and responses are sought, with a closing date on 8 October 2004. The research described here is not exhaustive, but does cover a range of further education institutions that are operating in a variety of settings. It draws on Adrian Perry’s own extensive experience in the sector, most recently as principal of Lambeth College. The report highlights a number of issues that should be considered during the LSC’s consultation on fees. The views expressed are essentially personal, reflecting the contributors’ and author’s views. The report is not LSC or Department for Education and Skills (DfES) policy; it provides an initial picture of current practice and draws some potential lessons from this, which can be discussed and debated during the consultation.
