Abstract:
This project examines the evidence relating to training by age amongst people who are currently unemployed or economically inactive. The focus is on all adults aged between 16 and the state pension age (SPA)1, since encouraging training throughout life is important to ensuring the supply of skills required by the economy.
Presents findings of three strands of research: a review of the current evaluation and academic literatures; analyses of the Labour Force Survey (LFS) 2004, and National Adult Learning Survey (NALS) 2002, and 22 interviews with individuals
from 16 organisations with in-depth knowledge that qualifies them to comment on relevant issues.
