Abstract

This paper reports on the first stage of analysis of data from a study of learners' perceptions of progression from community based adult learning in Scotland. The paper focuses on two case studies, and uses these to explore the learners' perceptions of progression in relation to descriptions of progression found in Scottish policy on lifelong learning. Commonalities and differences are highlighted. The paper discusses these, and explores the implications for policy makers and providers of non-formal and community based learning.
