A Guide to Work Based Learning Terms. Definitions and Commentary on Terms for Work Based Learning in Vocational Education and Training.
Further Education Staff Coll., Blagdon (England).
This guide is a developmental document that contains working definitions of terms and commentaries on them. Intended for those working or interested in vocational education and training (VET) at any level, the guide introduces the concepts and terminology associated with work-based learning in VET, offers assistance to readers trying to understand and use some of the new terms and language, and provides a source of background information on origins of some terms. Closely related terms are clustered around three themes that are used as section headings: (1) aims of VET; (2) methods and approaches in new VET; and (3) accreditation--approaches to assessment and certification, including standards and their use. Terms are listed alphabetically. For each term, there is a definition and a commentary. Terms discussed elsewhere in the document are underlined, and their page numbers listed in the alphabetical index at the end of the document. Where the definition is taken from earlier or current literature on VET, the source is cited in the reference list at the back of the document. Appendixes include a list of 139 references, a complete listing of the 30 readings recommended at the end of entries, abbreviations, and alphabetical index of terms. (YLB)
