Continuing professional development will indeed be supported by the University for Industry, along with the continuing learning needs of all adults ("Flexible accounts to pay for lifelong study", THES, January 8). Our task has been to identify how we can encourage lifelong learning at all levels. New ways of accessing learning will give those in continuing professional development the flexibility to learn at convenient locations. Combined with learning support this will attract new learners and make it easier for more employers to encourage continuing professional development.
