New Approaches to Gathering Learners’ Views

Discussion group In the Adult Learning in Scotland Statement of Ambition, one of the key success factors is that it is important that policy development always involves adult learners and that learners’ views are taken into account in their personal learning, in local planning areas and at national level. Funded by CLD Innovations and Improvement, Learning Link Scotland and the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) have conducted a series of consultations into methods of gathering learners’ views. The project involved adult learning groups from the WEA, Edinburgh City Council and Edinburgh College. 

The main themes to emerge were around security of provision, consistency of location and the name of the group, funding, childcare and communication systems between the organisation and the learners in relation to changes in the service. 

The learners were from the following groups: 

City of Edinburgh Council 

Edinburgh College
