Two joining advice-panel.

TWO people have been selected to advise the Government on further education.

The National Learner Panel was set up in 2006 to give learners a say in further education nationally.

Since then it has been advising the Government, the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) North East and other organisations involved in the work.

Anyone in further education is eligible to sit on the panel as a volunteer. Members sit for 12 months and are drawn from across further education.

Maureen Romaniuk, a civil servant from Sunder-land who is studying at Newcastle College, and Oliver Wood, of Newcastle, a student at Tyne Metropolitan College, have been appointed to the panel.

Chris Roberts, regional director of the LSC North East, said: "It is important we canvas the opinions of users to help shape further education strategies.

"It is good two learners from the North East have been appointed and will be making a contribution.
