Experian and Ipsos MORI were commissioned in August 2007 to undertake a strategic evaluation of Level 3 provision in England to 2010, based on an analysis of existing learner data, a 3-wave follow-up survey of Learning and Skills Council (LSC) funded Level 3 learners and additional employer, provider and learner qualitative research. In 2010, the election of the new Coalition government and the replacement of the LSC with the Skills Funding Agency have inevitably changed the policy emphasis since this project was commissioned. However, the research will still inform BIS and Skills Funding Agency about the nature of demand for Level 3 provision; the most effective routes for meeting learner needs as well as the relative costs of different programme areas. This document presents the findings from wave 3 of the learner survey, related back to previous waves of the survey undertaken on an annual basis since enrolment in September 2007. The report focuses on the impacts of the course on attitudinal, learning and job related outcomes. Statistically significant differences between learner groups as well as trend data are highlighted throughout the report.
