Impact of Learning on Employability

IES, in partnership with Inclusion, and BMRB, conducted research to understand what links and impact there may be on the improved employability of individuals who have undertaken a further education course. It focused on those who were not in employment at the start of the course and specifically those claiming income-related benefits and Jobseeker's Allowance. The secondary aims of the research were to understand what the wider benefits of learning have been in terms of motivation and other social benefits.
