Linking learning and everyday life: a social perspective on adult language, literacy and numeracy classes

Posted by Zoltan Varkonyi

This is one of the reports from the Adult Learners’ Lives project, a major NRDC research project carried out by members of the Lancaster Literacy Research Centre.

The overall aim of the project has been to develop understanding of the relationships between learners’ lives and the language, literacy and numeracy learning (LLN) in which they are engaged, and to draw out the implications of these for the Skills for Life strategy, the national strategy for improving adult literacy and numeracy skills. Starting from the perspectives of people attending LLN classes, the project focused on issues around motivation, participation, persistence and engagement.
