The Interplay Between Formal and Informal Learning for Low Skilled Workers (2008)

Project Description and Methods

The project presented in this report had three objectives: The first objective was to trace the learning paths, trigger events and decisions that lead basic level workers to become engaged in both formal and informal training at the workplace. This objective focused on the involvement of employees and instructors from actual award winning or finalist programs of the Conference Board of Canada Awards for Excellence in Workplace Literacy in 2003, 2004 and 2005. The second objective was to document the range of workplace education programs, the incidental or tacit knowledge and skills that are acquired outside of the formal training program and how these pieces fit together as a strategy for lifelong learning and work. A third objective was to explore the results of this project with a component of a large scale, longitudinal study in the United Kingdom.
