n Skills at Work: Theory and Practice Journal - Guest editorial : collaboration, convergence and finding common ground

Volume 7, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1815-3666


This editorial takes the form of an extended reflection on the papers in this edition, which converge around themes of Local Economic Development (LED), collaboration and skills development. They raise important issues for LED, but also for skills development more generally in occupational, vocational and professional education. I use these themes as a means towards identifying areas for research, and map a possible collaborative research programme for knowledge-building in the broad area of skills development in workplaces and in classrooms.
