Case Studies of Individual Learners
How are learners' needs identified and what learning experiences are in place for them? Are learners satisfied and challenged? What are the learning impacts and outcomes for them? This book reports the findings of research sponsored by the Local Government Association to answer these questions. Through the use of 11 case studies of individual learners, whose learning has been supported, helped or promoted by local authorities, the report: reveals the key factors and barriers affecting achievement; indicates the next steps or future developments for learners, the local authority and other providers; and examines and illustrates the distinct role and contribution of local authority leadership in promoting and ensuring learning locally. The report draws out key messages for local authority staff, schools and other organisations and individuals concerned with successful learning.

What Reviewers Are Saying
These case studies are hugely powerful and bring the research to life in a way that couldn't be achieved by dry statistics. The methodology is much more effective than traditional anecdotal or descriptive case studies. This report provides a valuable resource for disseminating good practice.
