first_imgNova Scotians are invited to respond to proposed regulations for the Adult Learning Act. The regulations will provide a guide to help administer the act, which was passed in the legislature in December 2010. Consultations are being held throughout the province with adult learning partners. “The consultation process is so important to the final result because we can learn from a variety of perspectives,” said Marilyn More, Minister of Labour and Advanced Education. “All feedback received will be considered. What we’ll end up with is a set of regulations made richer because of all the voices involved.” The regulations are to provide consistency for operations among organizations that teach adult education, including how they qualify to get public funding, what records they must keep, and how they report what they do. They also state adult learner responsibilities and what must be included in the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning annual report to the minister of Labour and Advanced Education. The proposed regulations in both French and English, and with details on how to submit comments can be found on the Department of Labour and Advanced Education’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/lae. The deadline for feedback is Monday, Oct. 31. The Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning is an initiative of the Department of Labour and Advanced Education that supports Nova Scotians as they build on their skills, knowledge and credentials to succeed at home, in the community, and in the workforce.last_img
