Abstract Current social and economic imperatives are leading to workplaces being seen as important and necessary learning environments in their own right, rather than places to augment knowledge learnt elsewhere. Frameworks for workplace learning can draw upon a long tradition of learning through practice that predates processes of learning in educational institutions. However, to legitimise and extend their worth, there is a need to identify and elaborate their purposes, conceptions of learning through work, and augment these with recent conceptual and procedural advances. Ultimately, these frameworks are characterised by what workplaces afford learners and how individuals elect to engage with what is afforded them.
