Winning Hearts and Minds

Winning Hearts and Minds is intended to provide you with all the information you need to win over the hearts and minds of managers, practitioners, learners and funders to the idea of 'Prescriptions for Learning.

From 2000, when NIACE first piloted a "Prescriptions for Learning' project in Nottingham the initiative has been continuously developed. Prescriptions for Learning is an approach whereby a learning adviseris located in a GP surgery or health centre and takes referrals of individuals. The adviser then works with people to support them to access appropriate learning opportunities. 

This guide contains everything you need to know about Prescriptions for Learning; from why it is a valuable and worthwhile project to how to set up a new project or sustain an existing one.
