Additional Information: The concept of communities of practice grew out of Lave and Wenger's (1991) study of forms of apprenticeship. The chapter critically examines the extent to which the CoP concept provides an appropriate framework for studying apprenticeship in contemporary workplaces in England. It draws on both qualitative and statistical evidence to argue that the CoP concept has to be updated to take account of contemporary political and economic realities.
