Warwick University Institute for Employment Research web site on Guidance, Learning and Careers providing access to research, tools and innovation.
This resource has been developed as a joint initiative of the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) and the Institute for Employment Research (IER). It draws together findings from across TLRP workplace learning projects and situates these in a broader context of research, policy and practice.
The Institute for Employment Research has since 2004 been working with the qualifications authorities of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland on ‘comparing qualifications’. This site outlines the developments that are taking place in each of the five countries and places these in the broader context of what is happening with proposals for a European Qualifications Framework. The ‘comparing qualifications’ tool was designed to help people thinking of working or studying in Ireland or the UK (and tutors and careers advisers).
