Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise: Implications for workforce development

A number of key thinkers from across UK further and adult education were commissioned to write short thinkpieces on the implications for leadership and workforce development of Healthy, Wealthy and Wise: the impact of adult learning across the UK.

Section one and the nine thinkpieces were shared with UK forums during the Spring of 2019 and feedback was received from events in Cardiff, Birmingham, Belfast, and Edinburgh. We have summarised these responses in section four which includes a possible conceptual framework for future workforce development planning.

Just as adult learning is based on the concept of the learner journey—or many messy and complex journeys—the same notion should be applied to professional learning.

On 23 October, we will be hosting a joint event to discuss this report further. Find out more here.
