Progression in career from undertaking a part time course
Using the contingent valuation method, we find that a course that enabled someone to progress in their work or career is, on average, valued at £1070. This is the most highly valued benefit. The least important benefit is "enabled you to help your children with school”, with an average WTP of £435. The impact on life satisfaction is valued as the second most important benefit: a course that made them more satisfied with their life overall is, on average, valued at £947.
