This book summarises the findings from the research programme Work-related Learning' (2001--2004). The programme has focused on the learning that takes place in the workplace and on the interplay between school-based learning and workplace learning. There are plenty of far-reaching questions to be tackled in connection with this exciting new development. At Learning Lab Denmark, a consortium of sixteen researchers have worked with these issues over a three-year period, and their results, findings and recommendations are summed up in this book. The book ranges from the background for this development, over general mapping of the area from social, learning and political angles, the development of an overview model and analysis of a wide variety of practical approaches to the concluding perspectives on a practical, a theoretical and a political level.
