    Abstract

    The theme of this paper is lifelong learning and the importance of work as a major site for learning. The paper draws on the results of three research studies, one relating to new full-time workers, one to part-time student workers and one to young people undertaking school-based new apprenticeships. It suggests some reasons why some young people, some types of employment contract and some workplaces appear to offer better opportunities for establishing lifelong learning habits than others.
