Learning brokerage offers a way to tackle the 'learning divide’ by helping learning providers to reach adults excluded from learning. This report presents findings from the final stages of a study of how brokerage works in communities and the workplace. Case studies reveal innovative partnerships that have succeeded in opening uplearning opportunities. Six stages of brokerage are described, with questions to help readers review and improve practice. The authors argue that learning brokerage could flourish within existing systems, but changes are needed – new funding mechanisms, more responsive learning providers, training for brokers and effective ways to measure achievement.
