This paper explores how further education (FE) colleges can make the best contribution to a renewed system and culture of adult and lifelong learning in the future, 15–20 years from 2009. It argues that FE colleges have learned since their incorporation in 1993 to work with more, and more diverse, adult learners than ever before, although their work is currently hindered by narrowly cast policies and inequitable funding regimes for adult learning. The paper draws on FE colleges, past and present, to propose their future contribution.
