Literacy, Welfare and Work: (1997)

Preliminary Study

The Literacy, Welfare, and Work (LWW) Preliminary Study was designed to help literacy practitioners: to understand the new socioeconomic and political context within which we are working; to identify the perceptions and experiences of both literacy workers and learners in relation to this context; and to begin an examination of the many factors that impact on students' abilities to find and keep a job.

This exploratory study is intended as a "first look'' at the complex relationship between education (specifically adult literacy) and employment. The study will also provide a framework for more extensive long-term research, namely the Literacy, Welfare & Work Longitudinal Research Project.
