BIS Research Paper Number 78 – Armed Forces Basic Skills Longitudinal Study: Executive Summary

June, 2012
Article:

The Armed Forces Basic Skills Longitudinal Study shows how large employers have successfully put English and maths at the heart of their respective recruitment and progression regimes; and how with the right support, significant numbers of employees can be engaged in learning. When learning is closely aligned with and supports individuals’ work roles, there is a large increase in both active engagement and the achievement of qualifications needed for progression.
