An Evaluation of the FEU REPLAN Programme.
Percy, Keith; And Others
This report presents findings of an evaluation of Further Education Unit (FEU) REPLAN projects, an initiative to improve educational opportunities for unemployed adults in Great Britain. Chapter 1 describes the origins of REPLAN and the evaluation methodology. Chapter 2 gives an analytic and descriptive overview of the 21 FEU REPLAN projects. Project characteristics are reviewed, the projects are described briefly with a number of critical and evaluative observations attached, and a few general and more speculative analyses are made of project characteristics. Chapter 3 presents results of an evaluation of the aims of the REPLAN projects. It outlines areas in which the program has made progress and areas that merit further funding. A model for outreach is suggested. Chapter 4 remarks on the efficiency of the REPLAN projects. These aspects are considered: project selection, negotiation, and initial phases; project management; staff selection and supervision; role of steering committees; project research, needs analysis, surveys, monitoring, and evaluation; report writing; and role of FEU development officers. Chapter 5 presents interim and indicative findings of the efficacy of the REPLAN projects. Discussion focuses on advisory consultation, intended outcomes, transferability, self-rating by projects on transferability, local continuity and efficacy, and dissemination. Chapter 6 makes conclusions and recommendations. Appendices provide 11 references, a list of REPLAN projects, evaluation methodology and participants, and the FEU curriculum model. (YLB)
