Discussed in the document's four sections are the following topics: statutory responsibilities and stakeholders' interests (responsibilities for securing adequate/sufficient FE provision, duties of funding councils, role of training and education councils and regional/subregional groupings, Charter for Further Education, other interested parties, information sources); current issues and responses (key issues, planning in competitive environments, importance of local context, local planning forums, local partnerships, independent initiatives by colleges, improved information, strategic positioning, enhanced planning skills/systems, improved guidance, resources); a framework focusing on student entitlements that considers the differences between providing FE for young people and providing it for adults; and next steps (leveling the playing field and recent initiatives). Appended are the following: checklists for adequate and sufficient provision; extract from the 1992 Further and Higher Education Act; and a list of contributors and workshop participants.
