This book provides an account of the curricular consequences of the outcomes approach to education (NVQs GNVQs etc). It contains contributions from leading experts in the field and, as such, is likely to become the core text in this area. An initial discussion of the main themes leads the reader into a discussion of key ideas and the theory behind the Outcomes approach covering, in addition, issues concerning standards and quality. Areas of the curriculum covered include assessment, modularization, flexible learning and work-based learning, higher level competences and the autonomous learner. It should be of interest to all concerned with the development of the curriculum, ranging from school sixth forms through further and higher education to professional industrial trainers with an interest in the development of education and training in the UK.
