Abstract

The evidence contained here is the first comprehensive and formal statistical analysis of demand for union-led learning in Scotland or the UK. A high degree of consistency of outcome resulted from each of the data sources used. This provides reliable evidence that there is considerable current demand and latent demand for union-led learning in Scotland, and that increased union activity in this area is likely to further stimulate demand. Any expansion of union-led learning would, of course, place additional learning demands on ULRs and would highlight further the need for them to be appropriately supported by unions and employers.
