Councils have welcomed a government scheme to encourage the old and the young to take up adult education classes via the internet, reports the Times (p12).

Lessons would take part in cyber cafes which are conveniently located in city centres. The move is part of a£9m campaign to expand adult education, announced by the department for education and employment yesterday.

Dick Corbridge, head of life-long learning and adult education at Manchester City Council, said: 'We have not used cyber cafes for lessons, if we have extra funding and the demand is there, we would be happy to fund classes there.'
