Supporting Hard-to-Reach Adult Learners in the Community

Principal focus of the project

This project aimed to provide access to learning for the 'forgotten' learners who could no longer access classroom-based learning and lacked digital solutions.

Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

Learning, Guidance and Support Officers (LGSO) were used to identify learners who were unable or unwilling to engage online and had a preference for classroom-based learning. A 6-week non-accredited programme of one-to-one informal interventions around Maths was developed, using reflective logs, to address this. The project reported that 92% of learners had progressed onto accredited learning or future career development.
