Abstract

This paper describes three work-based projects developed at the University of Stirling and other Scottish Institutions. The material presented is set in a policy context and considers a range of issues affecting policy and practice of government, higher education providers, and industry and commerce. Particular attention is given to the case of small to medium sized enterprises. Preliminary findings related to the characteristics of participating and non-participating companies are presented as well as comparative information on the socio-economic characteristics, motivation and barriers to previous participation of individuals on the programmes.
