Recent governments have encouraged the development and expansion of Adult Continuing Education.

It is perceived as the means through which individuals can enhance their lives, improve their employability in a changing labour market and acquire skills essential to the economy and employers.

The aims of the project were to:

  • establish a baseline picture of the present position of ACE in Wales
  • provide a definition for ACE
  • conduct a review of documentation on ACE in Wales, other parts of the UK and beyond
  • undertake a best practice review of ACE.
