Learning at life transitions

  • The WEA commissioned Learning and Work Institute to undertake the research, which was funded and published by the Further Education Trust for Leadership 
  • The new Learning at Life Transitions research report provides insights into what influences adults in their decision-making process, particularly during two key life transitions – preparing for retirement and returning to work after caring responsibilities 
  • The new research reveals we must tailor adult education around key life stages if we are to tackle declining learner numbers 
  • With participation in adult education at a 20-year low and the UK economy and society facing many critical challenges, new research launched today reveals that we must tailor provision around key life stages if we are to successfully address the challenges the country faces including; advances in technology, the changing nature of work and the need to reskill through extended working lives
