This is a timely collection since workplace learning (WPL) or work-based learning (WBL)- the two conceptions are not completely identical though they are often used interchangeably - of one kind or another is currently central to a range of DfES policy initiatives including vocational GCSEs, reconstructed Modern Apprenticeships, Foundation Degrees and the re-organisation of 14-19 education and training. All the papers in Working to Learn -though not necessarily always concerned with that form of learning which is the focus of recent policy (since WPL is the main perspective here, whereas WBL is what most mainstream policy initiatives are about) - are written by experienced researchers and practitioners in the field, and all have something of value and interest to contribute to the rapidly-expanding domain of discourse about and development of WPL and WBL theory and practice.
