This report forms part of Outcome 1 of the IMPADA project: to ascertain “criteria for measuring adult
education effectiveness on disadvantaged groups”.
The main goal of this research was therefore to explore and recognise what may form the key criteria for
measuring the effectiveness of adult education. These criteria will then be developed into a framework that
can be used by adult education providers to assess their current provision and further embed good practice, to
facilitate increased effectiveness of adult education for disadvantaged groups.
The research focused around two key questions:
1. What does “effectiveness of education” look like?
2. How can this be measured?
Answers to these questions will enable practitioners to better understand the challenges faced by
disadvantaged groups, ensure that interventions are put in place to improve its effectiveness, and ensure that
these are measured.
