Widening participation and progression issues: lessons from a learning partnership in the southeast

In this article, written in 2007 for a LSC publication by NIACE, I draw upon my experience of adult and community education in Brighton and Hove, and the lessons from across a range of projects, about how people participate in learning, what they judge to be progression and the lessons providersĀ  (and governments) should draw from their reflections. The key points IĀ  made in 2007 are still relevant now, as institutional memories fade.


Progression from informal learning in the community to formal education.

This report developed out of a project to explore progression pathways from informal learning in the community, to more formal education being undertaken by the Friends Centre, for the Targets for Adult Learning Working Group (TALWG) of the Brighton and Hove Learning Partnership, during autumn 2001. The aim of that project was to research the range of progression routes that learners may want, finding out if they are aware of what is currently available, asking what they would like to see provided and in what form.
