Facing Goliath : adults' experiences of participation, guidance and progression in education by Alan Blair( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study examined adults' experiences regarding participation, guidance, and progression in various formal educational settings across Scotland. In-depth interviews were conducted with 50 adult returners to the different parts of the education system (higher, further, and community education and local schools). Data from the interviews were synthesized into a portrait of adults' reasons for participating in educational programs; their guidance needs, persistence in the system, gains, and progression; and policy implications. Most respondents returned to the education system to improve their positions in the labor market. The respondents expressed a need for three types of guidance (information, advice, and support) while choosing their courses and during and near the end of their courses. Although most respondents were already highly motivated to stay on course, they considered an encouraging and friendly staff to be the single most important factor in helping them stay on course. Among the reported gains due to participation were increased self-confidence and self-esteem, increased academic knowledge, and new friends and interests. (Fifty references and 10 suggestions for further reading are included along with a technical appendix, detailed description of the sample, respondent profiles, and list of advisory committee members.)
