Citizens’ Curriculum Phase 2 Interim Evaluation Report

In 2015/16, BIS supported L&W to develop its work on the Citizens’ Curriculum by carrying out further piloting activity in contexts not included within the scope of the first piloting phase. This activity aimed to establish the added value of the model in a wide range of provision, such as in English and maths provision for unemployed adults, and in-work learning opportunities for those in low-skilled, poorly-paid work. In addition, L&W supported some Phase 1 pilots to deliver a second programme which built on their work from the previousyear.

This report presents the findings of the evaluation activities carried out during and at the immediate end of the Phase 2 piloting activity. The longer term impacts and outcomes of the pilots will continue to be tracked over the next 24 months as part of L&W’s role as the UK National Coordinator for the European Agenda for Adult Learning. This report also presents the process through which the Citizens’ Capability frameworks were developed and validated.
