This research aimed to provide a better understanding of learners’ experiences of adult English and maths courses in terms of skills gain, confidence and other life circumstances such as employment.
Learners attending English or maths Skills for Life funded courses were interviewed at 3 waves in their learning journey. These were:
- at the start of the course
- soon after the course ended
- one year after the course ended
Each interview included tests developed for the study to assess learners’ reading and writing or numeracy skills. Findings from these interviews are included in the documents.
The technical report and local authority comparison report for this study are included.
