Bogomtale fra forlaget.

The workplace is a crucially important site for learning in today's learning society. In this authoritative book, the authors look at the changing nature of the work and the effects that this has on the skill and knowledge requirements of individuals, its implications for the workplace and employment, and ways in which these changing requirements can be met.
The editors are founder members of the Working to Learn group, and are internationally recognized as leading experts in vocational education and training. International in scope and based on their wide ranging experiences and research, this book brings together the implications of workplace changes for educators, managers and society. In an age where jobs and work - and the success of organizations - are increasingly dependent on developing skills and knowledge, this will be important reading for educators, trainers, human resource managers and policy makers alike.
