Whereas participant 2 has previous experience from starting the course prior, therefore knowledge is apparent. Weaknesses in the research was evident by the barrier that was found in relation to gathering results from each researcher, evident by only 2 interviews being conducted, transcribed and provided for thematic analysis within the time period. What’s more, made the results limited and refutes the validity of them as more data could have been analysed and used to narrow down the themes. Results were also different in the area of the age difference of the participants. More life experience was evident from one participant than the other. The interviews were conducted before the adult learners had started to study. This gives weakness to procedure because the participants were asked for knowledge of concerns provided by the open questions, of which were unknown to them.
