The DfE has produced a summary report of 23 interventions which aim to improve participation and completion of maths and English courses.

The report looks at intervention projects based in further education colleges, workplaces and the community.

There is also an overview of research that has been conducted in the areas of adult literacy, numeracy and behavioural sciences, and an examination of the reasons why employers and their employees do not invest in basic skills training.

The research is accompanied by a practical guide to implementing the insights.
