Learning a Living is a timely and original contribution to the debate over the relationship between education, innovation, work and the workforce. The acute concerns around rising unemployment, especially amongst the young, will benefit from this authoritative contribution, which highlights fresh thinking, inspiring practice, and ways of encouraging the spread of such practice. The book explores the major trends shaping education for good work and 'good growth', includes success stories from around the globe, and features interviews and portraits of key figures, pioneering thinkers and learners. Together they paint a compelling and colourful picture of the resilience, creativity, teamwork and entrepreneurialism that learners and innovators around the world - from rural Nicaragua to the busy metropolises of Japan - are learning to put to use in the face of a challenging and rapidly changing world. In setting out a new model for learning which closes the academic/ vocational divide, the book looks at why narrow skills strategies are insufficient, and seeks to raise awareness of the importance of supporting people to develop the wide range of values and capabilities that they need to thrive in work and life, and ways in which this can be achieved.
