Abstract or Summary

This paper outlines a recent research project that investigates the impact of The Living Consensus conceptual framework on learning environments and the development of transferrable learning skills for youth (vocational learners under the age of 25). Literature that considers each of the five key teaching and learning strategies that sit within the framework is discussed. The potential impact of the five strategies working together to help develop transferrable working and learning skills for youth is examined through the use of case studies. As a result of this investigation, it is recommended that teachers employ facilitative and collaborative teaching and learning strategies (such as the five discussed in this study) to support the development of positive learning environments and transferable learning skills for youth. The work shop that has been designed to disseminate these findings will provide examples of the five key teaching and learning strategies in practice and ask participants to select and adapt at least one of these strategies to their own teaching context.
