Many adults and 16- to 18-year-old learners in colleges need extra help to enable them to reach their full potential in their studies. In 2005/06 inspectors from Ofsted and the Adult Learning Inspectorate (ALI) evaluated the quality of the literacy, numeracy and language support learners receive in 29 colleges across the country. The colleges were selected because they had received good or better grades for their Skills for Life provision in a previous inspection.
