Title: The Handbook of Work-Based Learning
Authors: Ian Cunningham, Graham Dawes and Ben Bennett
Publisher: Gower Publishing
As its title suggests, this is very much a ‘handbook’ aimed at a diverse employee population. It is a reference guide to be dipped into as and when the individual employee, line manager or HR professional is seeking guidance on how to get the most out of learning at work.
There is a good balance of concepts to help the reader understand the philosophy of work-based learning, and practical tools to encourage trying things out.
