Policy Brief 1
This is the first of two ENLIVEN Policy Briefs exploring the links between “system characteristics” (the relatively fixed features that derive from the institutions that structure particular societies) and adults’ participation in lifelong learning. They are based on two analytical reports focussed on disadvantaged social groups. This Policy Brief explores the barriers to lifelong learning participation: what hinders or prevents disadvantaged adult workers from learning.
Policy Brief 2
This is the second of two ENLIVEN Policy Briefs which explore the connections between ‘system characteristics’ – relatively fixed features that derive from the institutions that structure particular societies – and adults’ participation in lifelong learning. They are based on two analytical reports we have prepared on these associations, focussing particularly on disadvantaged social groups. This Policy Brief examines the consequences for the economy of barriers to participation in lifelong learning.
Policy Brief 3
This policy brief reports research conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of establishing an intelligent decision support system (IDSS) on interventions to support policy making for education and training for young adults in Europe. Although there is rich practical knowledge of what makes educational interventions for these young people successful, and the related literature is extensive, documentation is often scattered and inconsistent in form. Much of it also lacks sufficient detail to support informed decision-making. In this Policy Brief, we present novel research spanning two disciplines (education and computer science) – areas which seldom interact.
