    Abstract

    Closing the productivity gap with other nations has become a mantra of
    public policy in the UK since the late 1990s. Promoting participation in
    learning and training is seen as the principal means of narrowing the gap.
    While tracking episodes of training is relatively easy, it is not clear what is
    learnt, by whom and why. This paper examines these questions among a
    specific occupational group – exercise to music instructors – whose
    numbers have grown significantly in recent years. It identifies two
    productive systems through which these exercise classes are delivered.
    Each has different consequences for learning. Under one regime, training
    expands horizons and develops abilities, while under the second
    instructors are taught to conform and follow scripts written by others. The
    paper argues that ‘training’ can lead to different learning outcomes and
    that these are best understood through an analysis of the productive
    process which puts training and learning in context.
