A great number of students improve their job prospects once they have studied with Adult Education Wolverhampton. Our survey results show that 93% reported a positive employment related outcome. 33% got a full-time or part-time job, became self-employed or got a promotion after finishing their studies. Whilst a further 60% started volunteering, gained valuable work experience or noted another work benefit following their studies.
As well as gaining skills and qualifications, learning can bring a whole range of other benefits. Each year we ask our students what benefits they have got from their learning. Of 993 students surveyed last year 70% had gained in confidence, 35% had improved their physical or mental health, and 30% were more involved in their child’s education.
