Enhancing the capacity for workplace learning and innovation in Scotland

  The Scottish Government and supporting bodies have recognised the importance of innovation for organisations to improve employment growth, increase productivity and competitive advantage within the current labour market. Such recognition is demonstrated within current social and economic policy. This PhD, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and supported by Skills Development Scotland, investigates innovation and best practice in skills development in the workplace in Scotland, drawing comparisons with the rest of the UK and other countries. It aims to explore how employee-led workplace learning can be encouraged to deliver innovation, with specific focus on the learning of behaviors relevant for individuals to innovate in the workplace. This will lead to the development of a framework to explain how workplace learning can support innovation.
