Learning through work experience for the knowledge economy: issues for educational research and policy
Office for Official Publications of the European Communities, 2004 - Business & Economics - 137 pages
This publication examines the achievements and limitations of successive European policy reforms in relation to work experience programmes. It considers the implications of economic change and the development of the knowledge economy for education and training models in terms of skills requirements and employability. The study calls for change from traditional approaches to work experience as a form of socialisation to a different concept of work experience and learning based on the concept of 'connectivity'.
