Lifelong Learning Action Research Project Report
Collection: Research Materials
This report is the result of a collaborative research project of the Labour Education Centre and the Centre for the Study of Education and Work at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. This research is part of a broader project which is funded by Human Resources Development Canada and is intended to better equip unions to develop and manage worker education and training projects. The report will be useful to current and future project coordinators as well as others interested in worker education and training and labour education.
The project report provides a snap shot of union management of worker education and training projects, and of the supports needed for coordinators of such union work to strengthen their effectiveness. For this project, 150 people from 90 worker education and training projects in English-speaking Canada were contacted. Though not representative of the union movement as a whole, the study draws on a substantial sub-set of unionists active in this field.
