Interest, need and participation in Work-Based Learning (WBL) has steadily increased in Europe in recent years. It is partly a direct response to policy-level targets and priorities, at national and European levels and partly a natural reflection of the changing nature of the workforce, and the workplace, in which we see an ever increasing use of new technologies, growing internationalisation, changing career patterns and greater recognition of the importance of the knowledge economy. (European Commission (2013): Work-Based Learning in Europe. Practices and Policy Pointers)
In this brochure we bring you the latest national network developments in the partner countries of the Level Up!, and discuss the roles of the key actors in the implementation of WBL at different levels of education and in different types of organisations and workplaces.
