Review and Update of Research into the Wider Benefits of Adult Learning

Langue: EN

Posté par Jodie Crossley

This is one of a number of research reports commissioned by the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills (BIS). The researchers conducted a review of the literature since 2008 and analyzed data from the British Household Panel Survey to see if adult learning could be shown to cause desirable outcomes such as improved health and wellbeing, and improved parenting, civic participation, attitudes and behaviours. For the review they ranked studies according to the rigor of the analysis in establishing causality. They found that adult learning had positive impacts on reported life satisfaction and happiness, self-confidence, satisfaction with social life and leisure, self-reported health satisfaction, and was associated with increased trade union membership and involvement in voluntary work, greater desire to find a better job and improved financial expectations
