The study provides a detailed analysis of the benefits associated with Further Education and Skills for learners not in employment. The findings in this report are based on a telephone survey of 1,955 learners not in employment who received or completed their learning in 2011/12. In addition to focusing on the wider benefits associated with learning and qualification attainment, the research also explores learners’ reasons for undertaking the course; the role and effectiveness of information, advice and guidance (IAG); reasons for non-completion; and what might have happened in the absence of publicly funded training.
