The Value of Formal and Informal Training for Workers with Low Literacy (2008)

Exploring Experiences in Canada and the United Kingdom

In the study presented here, researchers investigated the formal and informal training activities of basic level employees using a qualitative multi-site case study research design. For this purpose, researchers selected seven programs from Canada and four programs from the North and South of England from small, medium and large businesses. In their report, the authors describe the range of formal and informal training activities and provide an analysis of informal learning as both an activity and as a process for workers improving their literacy skills.

This report includes the following sections:
- Abstract
- Introduction
- Theoretical context and focused literature review
- Methodology
- Interpretation of findings: The Range of Formal Workplace Programs; Types of Informal Training; The Informal Learning Process
