Summary This report provides a revised model of workbased learning for the vocational education and training (VET) sector in Australia, in response to emerging needs. The study provides a brief review of the theoretical foundations of the contemporary discussions surrounding workbased learning, drawn from literature on adult education and learning organisations. Literature on adult learning and learning organisations in the 1990's explored new dimensions of these topics and this new theorising enriched the concept of workbased learning. This examination of the literature enables the development of a model of an integrated approach to workbased learning. The model integrates compatible ideas from adult learning, learning organisations and action learning/research and facilitates new ways of thinking about workbased learning as a staff development model. This model confirms that workbased learning is an appropriate and relevant approach to staff development in contemporary times.
