This report analyses recent policy initiatives in England relating to vocational learning, and compares them with policies in Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. It describes key policies with respect to problems that have been identified, or might be anticipated, as these initiatives are implemented, and provides some tentative ideas about future scenarios for a vocational learning system. The report should be of interest to policy-makers, teachers, employers and others who are engaged in the vocational learning system.
