This report is the outcome of a Grundtvig Learning Partnership project which brought together eight partners to enable the sharing of practice on education, training and skills as a means to tackle poverty.
The Learning to Tackle Poverty project provided participants with an insight into the approach each country takes in delivering adult learning. There was a particular focus on understanding the measures in place to offer learning opportunities for adults with low levels of skills and qualifications. The project explored the approaches to widening access and participation through four related themes:
1. Skills for work – unemployment and worklessness
2. Reaching parents through family learning
3. Engaging older people, men and minority ethnic communities
4. The impact of learning on health & well-being
