Abstract

This paper looks at apprenticeship learning and training from a new standpoint ' the psychological contract. The notion of the psychological contract is commonly used in the human resource management field to understand the nature of employment relationships, particularly in a tight labour market where it is important for organisations to be able to motivate and retain workers.
