This new edition offers some excellent updates on an already seminal text for students engaging in work-based learning. I particularly welcome the focus on personal and professional development, and opportunities for quality self-reflection. – Suzanne Albary, University of Suffolk, UK
This is key reading for students and practitioners in the field of work-based learning. Two valuable aspects of this book are the regular exercises and case studies which are informative and interesting. – Pat Lang, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK
