|Value of Nayland's Community Education Programme
|With community and business support Nayland keeps offering opportunities for motivated people to be lifelong learners, build confidence and strengthen our community. WHY?
Research published by Price Waterhouse Coopers in 2008 showed there are 5 types of learners:
• Breaking barriers - participating more fully in community or society as an individual
• Community – participating and contributing more to communities
• Foundation – reading, writing, language, literacy
• Life long – expanding skills, knowledge and networks
• Targeted – “Give it a go” despite negative perception of learning environments.
Outcomes and benefits:
• Increased foundation skills
• Increased confidence and self-esteem
• Improved mental and physical health, home life and communication
• Moving towards further study or employment
• Increased community participation
“When compared to other community-based activities, ACE is likely to have one of the highest added values in economic terms as it focuses on improving people’s productive lives through learning, benefitting all areas of an individual’s life, whether as employees, parents or members of the community.”
