Coming up with the Evidence

To function as adult educators in the present climate, providers must be able to demonstrate that provision is focused in such a way that it supports overall targets established by funders. It is also increasingly important to demonstrate that provision addresses issues in specific geographical areas. There are two activities where it is particularly difficult to provide hard evidence: first, in progression tracking which shows where learners have moved on to over a period of years, perhaps across providers; second, in showing the impact of a combination of providers working in one geographical patch. Without such evidence it is difficult to sustain arguments, for example, about the way that non-accredited learning can help people move towards level 2 achievement or the way that Skills for Life work impacts on deprived communities. In this article, the authors discuss how Leicestershire and Leicester City Learning Partnership (LLCLP) has used existing data to produce hard evidence of learner progression.
