Learning contracts are valuable tools for winning the commitment of the learner, and ensuring that learners and trainers are working towards the same objectives. George Boak's timely book is based on more than twelve years' experience of using learning contracts in a variety of contexts. He begins by reviewing the different kinds of contracts and looks at the advantages and disadvantages of each. He goes on to explain what is involved in preparing, negotiating, supporting and evaluating a contract, and discusses related issues such as accreditation and the links between learning contracts and the competency-based approach. The text is supported throughout by case studies and detailed examples. Anyone concerned with management development or skills training, whether as educator, HRD practitioner or consultant, will find this a comprehensive and eminently practical guide.
