Abstract

The paper explores conceptualisations of work-based learning, knowledge and practice. It sets the discussion in its socio-economic context, one in which knowledge is seen as the route not only to societal competitiveness but also to well-being. Such arguments emphasise the turbulent environment in which work is set as well as the fluidity and rapidity in the transformation of knowledge. The paper examines the varying ways in which knowledge is conceptualised within these debates arguing that transformation is frequently set on a capitalist terrain rather than being tied to a radical political project.
