Adult Learning and Empowering Communities Fund (ALEC Fund) The ALEC Fund supports CRT in Scotland to deliver outcomes that improve opportunities for adult learning and building community capacity. We are delivering lifelong, learner-centred adult learning as described in Scottish Government’s Adult Learning in Scotland Statement of Ambition. We are doing this through our accredited SQA courses and workplace learning opportunities and have exceeded the outcomes and outputs agreed for the fund in each and every year. It is expected that we will have our 100th in the next few months. Our learners are those who have no or few qualifications so this is an important step in closing the educational attainment gap.
