Adult learners will show uneven patterns of development. Each learning progression, however, describes a typical pattern or pathway.

This means if a tutor knows where a particular learner “fits” on any one progression, they can be reasonably sure of what the learner will need to learn next in order to develop their expertise in that area.

Conversely, if a learner is struggling with a particular aspect of learning, the tutor can use the relevant progression to identify earlier learning that may have been missed and that the learner needs in order to progress.

The professional development tutor resource books that support each strand provide information to assist tutors as they use the progressions as a tool for identifying learner progress.
