Learning for a Change.
Groombridge, Joy, Ed.
Twenty-two local development projects for unemployed adults in England and Wales are described. Each was conducted during the first three years' operation of the REPLAN program funded by the Department of Education and Science, the Welsh Office, and the Manpower Services Commission. REPLAN aims to improve the quality, variety, and relevance of educational opportunities open to unemployed adults. The project descriptions are organized by geographic region. Each description states the project's global goal, specific objectives, monetary and educational staffing resources, activities, and outcomes, including "lessons learned" by those administering the project. Some of the projects' goals differed, but very often sought to help the unemployed (1) cope with unemployment; (2) improve their confidence and ability to seek employment; (3) consider getting more education; and (4) develop or preserve vocational skills. The methods/activities used to deliver project services often included informal education, community involvement, self-paced learning, and participant involvement in planning and running the projects' activities.
