Learning a Living: Radical Innovation in Education for Work

Valerie Hannon

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC

Format: Paperback

Learning a Living is a timely, engaging and original contribution to the debate over the relationship between education, innovation, work and the workforce. The acute concerns around rising unemployment, especially amongst the young (in the context of the global recession), have sharpened focus on how we prepare young people for the world of work. This authoritative overview of the major trends shaping education for work highlights fresh thinking and inspiring practice from around the world, and ways of encouraging the spread of such innovative practice. It is illustrated throughout with outstanding colour photography by leading photojournalist, Reza. Initiatives covered include: Big Picture Learning, USA; Rising Sun Energy Centre, California, USA; La Bastilla Technical Agricultural School, Nicaragua; Lumiar Schools, Brazil; LOYAC, Kuwait; INJAZ, Morocco; Jordan Career Education Foundation (JCEF); Silver Human Resources Centre, Japan; South University of Science and technology of China (SUSTC); Infosys, India; BRAC, Bangladesh; Widows' Alliance Network (WANE), Ghana; Smallholders' Rural Radio, Nigeria; 2ie, Burkina Faso; Omnia, Finland.
