Vocational Qualifications and SLDD Learners--A Work Based Learning Approach. Mendip Papers. MP 072.
This report examines how the "good practice" model of work-based learning (WBL) and its tools can be used with students having learning difficulties and disabilities. The model is a partnership model involving three prime partners: production professionals (employers), learning professionals (trainers and teachers), and the worker-learners. Although developed for use in the workplace, the model can be used with full-time students in settings which involve work experience or practical assignments. The way that the model addresses the need for vocational qualifications is briefly outlined. Various learning routes available in the community are listed and the specific functions of the learning professional in guiding the process are explained. Eight appendices include: a definition of WBL, the Individual Development Plan, a list of strategies for structuring learning in the workplace, the job competence model, the WBL core skills, an assessment matrix, and suggested resources and references. (Contains 12 references with annotations.) (DB)
