Integrating Work-based and Subject-based Knowledge
in Intermediate-level Qualifications
The Putting Knowledge to Work project focuses on long standing challenges of integrating theory and practice in work-based learning programmes.
Six detailed case studies provide exemplars of putting knowledge to work in programmes ranging from Foundation Degrees to non-accredited senior staff development programmes. They are structured and analysed according to four re-contextualisation processes. In each case commentaries and recommendations discuss the chains of recontextualisation and lessons that can be drawn for programme design and practice.
