Engaging homeless people, Black and Minority Ethnic and other priority groups in Skills for Life


This report examines what we know about how adults identified as priority groups in the Skills for Life strategy are engaging in learning related to improving their language, literacy and numeracy skills. This overview draws principally, but not solely, on research carried out by the National Research and Development Centre for Adult Literacy and Numeracy (NRDC). Since its inception in 2002, NRDC has undertaken quantitative, qualitative and practitioner-led research to illuminate and improve the learning experiences of the most disadvantaged learners.
