Abstract

This report analysed the views of adult literacy and numeracy learners from 9 geographical areas of Scotland and the views of tutors from the same areas in order to assess the impact of participation in adult literacy and numeracy (ALN) provision on individuals’ lives and any wider benefits as perceived by the learners and tutors. It used both quantitative and qualitative data. Learners were interviewed twice in order to assess differences that had occurred in their views as a result of their participation in ALN. Six hundred and thirteen learners were interviewed in the first interview and 393 learners were re-interviewed one year later. Seventy-eight tutors were interviewed once to assess their views of the impact of the ALN strategy on their learners.
