The Government has identified participation in higher education as one of its highest priorities, highlighting access to education as the key to economic growth, social justice and regeneration.

Despite this, the numbers of working-class students are not growing and drop out rates are high. This report is based on a study which explored how drop out is experienced and understood within local contexts. Focusing on four UK locations: Staffordshire University, England, University of Glamorgan, Wales, University of Ulster at Coleraine, Northern Ireland and University of Paisley, Scotland, the study takes a participatory approach and involves ex-students, members of the local community, employers and university staff in debate and in-depth interview about the meaning and perceptions of drop out locally and what the implications are for regeneration.

The report also analyses how working-class drop out has been experienced and addressed in other countries, and what new perspectives can be brought to break the current deadlock situation in the UK. This book reconceptualises lifelong learning, drawing on international experience, and outlines a model for more mobile and flexible opportunities for working-class learners.
