Bringing Learning to Life Summary

Bringing Learning to Life: Learning Revolution, the Economy and the Individual by David Bradshaw

Knowledge is power and in today's economic climate, the ability to learn is of paramount importance. This book explains the connections between economic success and the kinds of learning which support it. Written by leading writers in their fields, chapters consider the changes taking place in various job sectors, that is within routine production, the people related services and symbolic analytical services (problem solving by application of knowledge and intellectual skills). In addition, the roles provided by defined jobs, flexible jobs and work carried out from home are examined. The worth of knowledge in today's market-driven economy is evaluated - the focus being on the relationship between post-compulsory learning and employment. The curriculum, its framework for the late school and post l6 year group, guidance for education and work, and the country's qualifications structure is discussed together with the findings of research into the brain's functioning which demonstrates how better knowing the way the mind works can, in turn, facilitate the learning process. Of interest to all managers of learning: staff development officers in companies, senior college, university and TEC staff, and members of the new inspectorate, the book concludes with a strategic view of national policy and objectives and highlights the action to be taken to improve learning skills.
