The social and personal benefits of learning: A summary of key research findings

In this report we present research that explores the many benefits that learning brings to individuals and to society as a whole. It also seeks to inform the funding, planning and practice of education at every stage of the lifecourse. We have looked at learning in its widest sense and its most precise: for individuals, their families, their communities and their country. We have also used the full range of social science research methods, combining fieldwork interviews and quantitative data analysis, literature reviews and statistical tools. Our evidence is robust enough to underpin an understanding of how education works to sustain more than purely economic benefits.
