Describes the findings of a survey of 4,000 people who have recently completed a community learning course in England. It looks at what learners feel about the learning they have done and how it has affected their lives. The survey covered:
- peoples’ attitudes to learning
- motivations to participate
- specific things the course gave them
- other questions on how the course has had an impact on other areas of learners’ lives, such as parenting skills, health and well being, looking for a job, taking part in more courses, volunteering and meeting different people
These findings are shown for different types of learners depending on where they live, their income, gender and ethnicity.
