Unfinished Business in Widening Participation: The End of the Beginning

Learning and Skills Network (NJ3)
Over a decade has gone by since the report of the Widening Participation Committee--"Learning works"--was presented to the Further Education Funding Council. Ten years on, this report asks how far have we come in the decade since "Learning works"? What progress have we made? And what barriers have we yet to overcome? Bringing together the perspectives of key thinkers, researchers and commentators, it aims to stimulate debate on what we need to do next to widen participation. (Contains 9 figures, 5 charts, 2 tables and 24 footnotes.) [This document was edited by Geoffrey Copland, Darshan Sachdev, and Colin Flint. The Foreword was written by Baroness Helena Kennedy.]
