Learning in the workplace can bring economic, social and personal benefits. Yet, building upon, improving and extending such learning places significant demands on everyone involved, from individuals and employers to government and its agencies.

This paper argues that an understanding of, and support for, teaching and learning has to lie at the heart of a new workforce development strategy. It explores how access to workplace learning can be enhanced and provision
fostered and improved. The role of guidance in helping to expand opportunities for workplace learning is also considered. Support from Derbyshire Learning and Skills Council and right4staff, Derby, for the production of this paper is gratefully acknowledged.
