Connecting Research with Policy (2008)

The Learning Paths of Low Skilled Workers

In this booklet in the Connecting Research with Policy series, three key findings relating to learning and low-skilled workers are described. Below each finding, a brief paragraph entitled "policy implication" discusses what the key finding means in terms of workplace policies. The key findings discussed in this document are summarized as follows:

1- Workplace literacy and essential skills programs are catalysts for further learning at work.
2 - Employees with low skills can easily identify the types of informal workplace learning that happens from day-to-day.
3- Workers learn differently in formal training programs than they do when learning informally in their daily work.
