Learning and Work Institute

The Learning and Work Institute are an independent policy and research organisation dedicated to lifelong learning, full employment and inclusion. They bring together over 90 years of combined history and heritage from the ‘National Institute of Adult Continuing Education’ (NIACE) and the ‘Centre for Economic & Social Inclusion’.

The Institute want everyone to have an opportunity to realise their ambitions and potential in learning, work and throughout life. They believe a better skilled workforce, in better paid jobs, is good for business, good for the economy, and good for society.

Claire has been working with the Institute on a number of their projects, including:

  • a mapping study of work experience opportunities across England
  • an evidence review on the learning experiences of women returners
  • an evidence review on traineeships
  • an assessment of the progress of Learning and Enterprise Partnerships in preparing for T-levels.
