Ufi VocTech Trust and Learning and Work Institute (L&W) have come together for the VocTech Challenge: Skills for an Economy in Transition, to better understand some of the biggest challenges in adult vocational education and support some of the most impactful solutions.
Through a review of existing research and good practice, and by challenging current assumptions testing them against evidence from the real, lived experiences of learners and people working in the learning and skills sector, we have better understood the landscape of adult learning.
We are publishing the results of this research in this Green Paper which sets out six key findings regarding the adult skills landscape, and concludes with three problem statements that bring together the themes of those findings through the lenses of a transitioning economy, learners, the skills system, and the role of digital technology and pedagogies.
"This report, and our partnership with Learning and Work Institute (L&W), is testament to our commitment to widening opportunity and access to vocational learning. It is only by getting more people learning throughout their lives that we will be able to extend opportunity to those further from traditional provision, achieve greater levels of more equitable growth and better prepare ourselves for an economy in transition."
