Abstract or description
Learning brokerage offers a means to tackle the UK’s ‘learning divide’, by helping learning providers to reach adults excluded from learning. This report presents early findings from a study on how brokerage works in communities and the workplace, and implications for post-16 learning and skills provision. Based on a literature review and wide consultation, it analyses the key functions and stages of learning brokerage, pointing to conditions that promote or hinder success. It challenges assumptions about the kinds of learning opportunities most likely to attract and support ‘new’ learners and includes a directory of examples.
