Skills, Knowledge and Economic Outcomes: A Pilot Study of Adult Learners in Gloucestershire.
McGivney, Veronica
Adults Learning (England), v6 n6 p172-75 Feb 1995
Survey responses from 879 adult students and 100 tutors in art, craft, and language courses in Gloucestershire revealed a wide range of motivations, many social, for participation. Skills acquired were used in many practical ways, including starting businesses, changing careers, and enriching volunteer work. Participation increased social contacts, provided physical and mental stimuli, increased confidence and self-esteem, and encouraged further education. (SK)
