Abstract

Work Based Learning is a growing area in education and many employers can benefit greatly from supporting their key employees in upskilling and gaining higher qualifications. This book is the practical guide that employers need to guide them through the process in the most straightforward and beneficial way. Planning and Reviewing Work Based Learning: a Practical Guide is an essential guide for anyone involved in organising, commissioning or evaluating work based learning. Throughout, the book emphasises a ‘stakeholder approach’, advocating a collaborative and partnership approach that includes employers, commissioners, providers of learning and learners themselves to deliver better outcomes for all involved. Topics covered include: • How work based learning can add value to an organisation, highlighting the success factors. • How to commission a work based learning programme in response to a business plan and the organisational outcomes required. • Guidance about costs, value for money and practical considerations. • Factors affecting the implementation of work based learning, including guidance when planning programmes. Initially developed from experience in the public sector, in particular health, this book clarifies the issues involved in learning through, at and for work. Planning and Reviewing Work Based Learning shows how to make work and learning come together in the most productive way.
