Summary

This report describes the results of a study aimed at presenting a broad picture of educational opportunities open to unemployed adults in England and to identify problems and possible solutions. Material for the report was gathered through visits to a variety of institutions and agencies in urban and rural areas of England. The report is organized in eight chapters. The first two chapters cover the problems of recruiting adult unemployed persons into educational settings, and the possibility of recruiting persons through agencies that serve the jobless, such as unemployment offices and trade unions. Chapter three points out the necessity of making course offerings accessible to their audience, while the fourth chapter describes the types of courses that are currently available to the unemployed, as well as those that serve a wider clientele. In the fifth chapter, types of counseling available to the unemployed are discussed. The sixth and seventh chapters describe the sources of funding for adult education programs, and training needs of teachers of the unemployed and the use of volunteers respectively. In the final chapter, the validity of the educational experience is chronicled; i.e., the importance of adult education and the positive effects it has had on those unemployed persons who were able to be reached.
