From Policy to Practice: the Value of Work-based Learning

Glyndŵr University Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series 2010/11


Professor Karen Graham, Professor of Childhood and Family Studies, Glyndwr University

The Leitch Report, Prosperity for all in the Global Economy: World Class Skills (HM Treasury, 2006) has placed skill development and workplace learning central to economic prosperity. It recommends that by 2020 more than 40 per cent of adults be skilled to graduate level and above, a target to be achieved, in part, through the development of workplace and lifelong learning.

In this lecture Professor Graham will focus upon the workplace as a centre for learning, qualification and skill development and explain how, in the childcare sector, pathways to qualifications can be used to promote individual, family and national economic prosperity. Describing the current qualification systems she will explore the importance of sector knowledge, values and work-based skills and how workplace learning opportunities can be structured to provide a coherent framework within which to build a culture of continuous quality improvement.
