New head for Niace Dysgu.

Adult learning is crucial to the prosperity of Wales as the population ages, the new director of adult learning organisation, Niace Dysgu Cymru, has warned.

Richard Spear, 34, has recently joined the organisation from his former position as head of programme funding at the Welsh Assembly Government.

Mr Spear has also previously held funding and policy posts with the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, the Further Education Funding Council for Wales and Elwa.

Mr Spear said he was looking forward to taking up his new post.

"At a time when the population is ageing, the role of Niace Dysgu Cymru in promoting adult learning is critical if Wales is to achieve economic and social prosperity," he said.
