How can we motivate adults to engage in literacy and numeracy learning?

This review is concerned with the topic of motivating adults to improve their literacy and numeracy skills. It firstly considers why literacy and numeracy are important and presents evidence that shows that in England, as in most OECD countries, the levels of literacy and numeracy skills in the working-age population are worryingly low. More specifically, the review builds on recent analysis of trends in skills levels over the life course, which demonstrates that adult basic skills can both build and diminish in employment, meaning that adults can be supported to develop their literacy and numeracy after the completion of compulsory schooling. This review was commissioned as part of the UK government’s Foresight Future of Skills and Lifelong Learning project.
