The first panel in Fenland giving local people a chance to share their views on how adult learning is delivered will take place in Chatteris.

The Independent Learning Advisory Panel aims to give people a real say on the priorities for using the adult learning funding in the town.

The first meeting is taking place on Thursday 29 January 2015 from 7.00 pm to 8.30 pm in the Vermuyden Room at Chatteris Library. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Similar panels will be held March and Wisbech and throughout Cambridgeshire.

Jane Shardlow,  Direct Delivery and Partnership Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: "This is a real chance for people to have an input in adult learning in the town. Each panel will ultimately decide what they discuss. However, discussion points could include transport difficulties, how adult learning can support a move into employment, volunteering or further learning. Please join us and help shape adult learning for the town."

Cambridgeshire County Councillor for Chatteris Sandra Rylance, added: "I'd encourage those people that care about adult learning to attend this meeting and have their say. It can only be good for the town and for the community. Adult learning is an important way that people can improve their skills and their career chances."

Cambridgeshire County Councillor, Ed Cearns, Vice Chairman of the Council's Economy and Environment Committee, said: "I welcome this project, giving people a greater say. Investing in adult learning is an important way of investing in our local economy. It is important that people take the opportunity to shape future learning."
