International review programme: adult basic skills development

Skills for Life Network

This literature review looks at how adults’ basic skills can be improved through family, workbased and flexible learning. It also looks at two specific components within basic skills: financial capability and employability skills. A programme report, leaflet, conference paper, discussion paper and presentation slides are now available to download.

The International Review Programme comprises six literature reviews which were undertaken by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) between September 2009 and May 2010 for CfBT, with the purpose of informing continuous improvements in the teaching and learning of adult basic skills. The impacts of developing basic skills are considered for individuals and employers as well as for society as a whole.
