About this book


The emergence of learning policy is traced through a history of postwar UK education and training. The 1944 settlement is seen to be replaced by a new settlement marked by the 1988 Education and 1992 Further and Higher Education Acts. This also signals a change from the classic, postwar welfare state to a postwelfare, workfare or contracting state.
