Education, Work and Identityexplores changing patterns of education and work, the dynamic relationship between these two institutions, and the wider social andeconomic contexts shaping them. It locates this in processes of social and economic change, in particular the shift towards globalization and the post-industrialeconomy. The book examines how these changes have reshaped individuals' educational,transitional and labour market experiences. It also explores key themes and approaches in understanding the education and labour market interplay, and theway in which education and work institutions shape people's orientations and identities around work.
