There is strong evidence that participation in education and training can produce social capital outcomes. There is also strong evidence that such outcomes are useful outcomes; they can enhance the development of other outcomes often called human capital and they can contribute to the social-economic wellbeing of the learners and the communities in which they live.

This paper reports on a research project that investigated what teachers do to produce social capital outcomes in adult literacy and numeracy courses
