The last decade has witnessed an increasing focus, both in research and in the policy debate on human resource development (HRD) and work-based education and training, as instruments for enhancing productivity, competitiveness, and economic growth. Unfortunately, the increasing interest in these issues has only, to a limited extent, been followed by more profound changes in existing practices concerning HRD, training and other forms of competence development in firms and agencies. Outlines a conceptual framework that might be used as a point of departure for theoretical and empirical analyses of the concepts of occupational competence and qualification, and of the role of HRD and vocational education and training (VET) in the formation of competences and in the promotion of social innovation.
