Some issues l.jpg

Some issues

Who’s learning for whom?

What are the employers expectations?

Epistemology of knowledge

Employer perspectives l.jpg

Employer perspectives?

Humanistic employers.

Employer autonomy is very important.

Welcome independence

Employers who want training cheaply, delivered on the premises.

Autonomy is considered important but there is considerable procedure and process control.

Employers that consider education and training takes place in the training room,- but learnt on the job. Quite formulaic want something ‘they can hold in advance’ for their investment – (where is the learner)
