Adult Participation in Learning Survey 2023

Learning and Work Institute (L&W) has tracked the number of adults taking part in learning through an annual Adult Participation in Learning survey, the largest of its kind, and now in its 27th year. The results for 2023 show that almost one in every two adults in the UK (49%) have taken part in learning in the last three years. This is a statistically significant increase (+8 percentage points) on the participation rate in 2022 and the highest recorded since the survey began in 1996. The National survey records adult participation in learning at a historic high but identifies persistent inequalities between groups.

Life changing opportunities for learners and staff within the adult education sector

Taith is a new programme enabling people in Wales to study, train, volunteer and work all over the world, while allowing organisations in Wales to invite international partners and learners to do the same here in Wales. We want to maximise the opportunities for the adult learning sector and work with you to provide support to make the most of opportunities within Taith.
