The first report commissioned by Ufi Charitable Trust investigates opportunities for and barriers to the application of digital technology to adult learning.

Scaling Up: achieving a breakthrough in adult learning with technology was compiled following research including 142 phone and online questionnaires and 36 in-depth interviews with researchers, business people, learning professionals and civil servants.

Focusing on possible ways to transform the UK’s vocational education and training system, report authors Adrian Perry, Clive Shepherd, Dick Moore and Seb Schmoller were able to identify three main priorities for funding:

* Increasing the capability of those involved in running the vocational learning system

* Exploiting networks to bring together learners, learning content and learning professionals

* Harnessing computers to support individualised and differentiated learning
