Moser Report (1999)

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A document which sets out the findings of the review of adult basic education undertaken by Sir Claus Moser and his consultative group in order to inform a new framework for lifelong learning. The Report appeared with the recommendation that there should be a National Adult Basic Skills Strategy, which would include setting national targets, increasing opportunities for learners, developing a new system of qualifications, and introducing changes to teacher training and inspection.

The Report has had its most noticeable impact on the further education sector, where, as a result of Moser's recommendations, all teachers of adult basic skills are now required to hold a specialist teaching qualification; and teachers of all other subjects in further education are required to demonstrate mastery of a minimum core of skills, including language, literacy, and numeracy, and information communication technology before they can gain their teaching qualification.

Subjects: Education.
