Knowledge, Learning, Community
According to this post, "VET plays a critical role as the entry point to learning and builds considerable social and other forms of capital in regional communities" but "There is a need for a more holistic approach to training, giving consideration to the continuing learning pathway along which an individual may travel, as opposed to focusing on discrete packages and modules." Fine, but I am always wary of publications that refer to "human capital" as this reduces humans to their financial value, which is utterly ridiculous.
