9780415202114: Education, Training and the Future of Work II: Developments in Vocational Education and Training (Open University Reader 2 for the E837 Module)

This volume focuses on the recent changes in education and training policy, mainly in the UK. The considerable developments of past years and the ways in which they have affected both education and training are examined. The contributors analyse the methods by which we educate our workforce, and look closely at the kind of training now offered to those in work.
The chapters in this reader cover:
* the role of the state
* how economic factors influence education
* national education and training policy
* the political factor.
Other countries including Germany are looked at, and there is reflection on the ways in which the 'new' industry led qualifications such as NVQs have fared. There is careful analysis as to how much the political climate of the time influenced developments.
There is thorough research to back up claims made throughout the book, and many practical examples are referred to. What emerges is an incisive examination of current trends in education and the workplace.

Review:

'The editors have made wise and well-considered choices in selecting material to achieve the aims of the book. Typical of an Open University reader, which this book is, all of the contributors have been published elsewhere as journal articles or book chapters and are well known in the field ... brought together in this reader the contributions do benefit significantly from one another and serve in a powerful way to enable a wider audience to become aware of current debates surrounding vocational education and training.' - Educational Review
