Ways of Organisational Learning in the Chemical Industry and their Impact on Vocational Education and Training, Final Report

Project ID: HPSE-CT-1999-00041
Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

Terms like "learning company" or "learning organisation" are now often used to describe a new quality of learning within companies. However, there is a lack of clarification as to what companies really do when they declare themselves as "learning companies".
Based on a conceptual framework, the project "Ways of Organisational Learning in the Chemical Industry and their Impact on Vocational Education and Training" (Acronym: OrgLearn) has aimed to identify ways of organisational learning in European companies and its implications for vocational education and training. It has focused on the chemical industry particularly in Belgium, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Organisational learning is defined as happening when "an organisation stimulates individual learning in order to share learning processes between individuals and to distribute the results of such learning within the organisation".
