Outreach and Inreach. Colleges and Unemployment Groups. FEU REPLAN.
Portwood, Derek
Outreach has recently played an increasingly significant role in education and training for adults. In particular, the emphasis of Great Britain's REPLAN program on increasing the participation of unemployed adults in education and the impact of decreasing numbers of 16- to 19-year-old students in some colleges of further education have given impetus to the development of outreach work. This report examines the setting for outreach in terms of individuals' experience of unemployment and the emergence of unemployment groups. It describes in case studies three initiatives taken by educational providers that have promoted and fostered such groups. The interaction between unemployment groups and educational institutions is analyzed and explored. Issues are raised concerning the rationale, resources, methods, skills, and outcomes of outreach in this context. The report provides colleges with guidance, information, insights, and techniques for use in developing work with unemployed adults. It also indicates to unemployment groups how they may more adequately use, influence, and contribute to educational services. A list of 42 references is included. (KC)
