New research by Learning and Work Institute reveals that people are spending billions of pounds on their own learning – more than the government or employers. Analysis published claims that learners invest £7.3 billion of their own money and £55 billion worth of their own time in education each year – well in excess of the £42 billion annual investment by employers, and the £6.8 billion in tax reliefs and learning provision by the government. This equates to £323 per learner studying an average 223 hours annually. Click here for FE Week Commentary.
