Learning at work

This resource has been developed as a joint initiative of the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) and the Institute for Employment Research (IER). It draws together findings from across TLRP workplace learning projects and situates these in a broader context of research, policy and practice. The focus is upon a number of topics that take further the work started by the TLRP workplace learning 'sharing expertise' group. This material has been put together by Alan Brown, who is a TLRP Associate Director with responsibility for workplace learning, and much content here is mirrored on the TLRP site Sectoral Overview of Workplace Learning. From that site it is possible to access the full range of TLRP materials. The main TLRP website will be actively managed until September 2009, while this site will continue to operate until at least 2012. Further work will be undertaken to facilitate a more interactive engagement with material and ideas coming from the work of both TLRP and IER, particulalrly in the area of guidance, learning and careers, through the development of a complementary GLACIER community site that will allow discussion of key themes, with the first theme being Higher Skills Development.
