No mention of how libraries and LRCs fit into the plan.

Hi Jacqui,

Thank you for your comment, and my apologies if you feel we have done libraries or LRCs a disservice.

Learning providers, employers, awarding bodies and the community are all complex entities and it would have been impossible to include specific details for all stakeholders in a blog post. We used the term “support staff” as a catch-all under the heading “Your organisation”, and I acknowledge that along with those supporting widening participation or delivering staff development, IT services, and the senior management team, libraries and LRCs have a key role to play. As you imply, it is important that all stakeholders are identified and embraced which we aimed to address under the heading "Cross-functional collaboration".

Recognising the importance of libraries and LRCs, we have dedicated specialists that can support you in developing strategic approaches in these areas. Please contact me directly if you would like to pursue such support and I will make the appropriate introductions.

Best Regards, Mark Ayton.
