Current education policy is urging the development of more vocational learning opportunities for young people and adults. However, our current knowledge base about the effectiveness of vocational learning is sparse and requires urgent development. This report critically reviews a range of evidence on different vocational learning programmes, their purposes and outcomes, and what we know about the learning processes involved. The findings will be of interest to teachers and trainers, managers, inspectors and policy-makers.
