This book examines Britain's main education, enterprise and training systems. Detailed studies of national programmes and local areas illustrate the local detail of a broader national picture. The central argument is that a major learning process is required to develop more powerful business-led local institutions beyond the One Stop Shop if Britain is successfully to answer the challenges of the 21st century.

This book is not only the first full examination of past and present initiatives; it also suggests means to help achieve the sustained changes required in the future across the complete field of education, training and enterprise.
