The links between community, work and family have generated widespread interdisciplinary interest, which this journal draws together with a focus on theory, research, policy and practice. The Journal provides a forum for social scientists and practitioners to share experiences and ideas and debate current issues and controversies.


Journal of Education and Work

The Journal of Education and Work is an international forum for academic research and policy analysis which focuses on the interplay of the education and economic systems.

The journal examines how knowledge, skills, values and attitudes both about and for work and employment are developed within the education system. The journal also explores the various forms of industrial training and accreditation in the economic system, including changes in the economic and industrial infrastructure which influence the type of employees required. Work in the informal economy is also included.

The Journal of Education and Work has a particular interest in comparative studies of skill formation and especially the transition from education to employment, how this process is structured and managed, and its effects on the young people, schools, colleges, universities and employers.

The journal publishes interdisciplinary papers which reflect the multifaceted nature of the journal's concerns. Articles are welcome from economists, psychologists, sociologists, educationalists, and policy analysts. The journal publishes case studies from practitioners which present innovation grounded in relevant literature and debate.
