Across the whole field of public service, targets are increasingly recognised as a mixed blessing. Within the government's Skills for Life policy their introduction has been particularly polemic. This discussion paper brings together three contributions that add to the debate of how Britain can best meet the policy goal that underpins the target - that of how to strengthen skill and confidence in literacy, numeracy and language amongst adults in Britain who need support and encouragement. Written by three leading figures in the field the paper includes discussion, questions for reflection as well as recommendations for future development.
