COMPILATION OF FIVE PAPERS

Introduction

The five papers contained in this compilation were produced during 2004 and follow curriculum developments within Post 14 education, training and community learning environments. They were produced to stimulate debate regarding the use of new technology within education and training and highlight new initiatives that impacted upon the delivery of education and training within school, further/adult education and work-based learning environments.
