(2012) Informal learning in later life - results of the Age UK survey
A report on a survey carried out in autumn 2011 by Age UK to find out more about older peoples’ views on informal learning. The research was principally to inform Age UK's views for responding to the government’s reforms of the Community Learning budget and does not show a representative sample of older people nationwide. It is not a substitute for academic research into the subject area or more formal statistical data, but should be viewed as an accompaniment for such research, and to provide an insight into the feelings of already-engaged people aged 50 and above about informal learning. 174 survey responses were recieved.
