Integrating personal learning and working environments

Graham Attwell, Cristina Costa

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This review paper part of a series of papers commissioned by the Institute for Employment Research at the University of Warwick under the title of 'Beyond Current Horizons – Working and Employment Challenge'. In turn, in forms part of a larger programme of work under the banner of Beyond Current Horizons that is being managed by FutureLab on behalf of the UK Department for Schools, Children and Families. The brief was to cover:
- The main trends and issues in the area concerned;
- Any possible discontinuities looking forward to 2025 and beyond;
- Uncertainties and any big tensions;
- Conclusions on what the key issues will be in the future and initial reflections on any general implications for education.

Given the wide ranging nature of the brief, this paper largely confines itself to trends and issues in the UK, although where appropriate examples from other countries in Europe are introduced.

We realise that in an age of growing globalisation the future of work and learning in the UK cannot be separated from developments elsewhere and that developments in other parts of the world may present a different momentum and trajectory from that in the UK. Thus, when reading this report, please bear in mind the limitations in our approach.
