The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Howard Newby has given an after dinner speech at the Lifelong Learning Networks National Forum Conference in Birmingham.
In his speech, ‘Turning opportunities into success’, the Vice-Chancellor outlined that the next phase of expansion in higher education will hinge on providing opportunities for different types of people to study in a wider range of ways than in the past.
He also stated that the demand for higher level skills will increase nationally and internationally, driven by the needs of global and national economies and that lifelong learning will not be an option but a necessity.
The Vice-Chancellor was invited to speak in part because of his key role in developing the concept and funding for this initiative in his role as Chief Executive of the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
