AbstractThis afterword is an attempt to reframe questions about vocational education through a theory of practice concerned with the lived realities and everyday potentialities for worker/learners’ learning at and through work. We briefly analyze the currents of thought in the articles in this special issue running between the critiques of the crisis in the Australian VET system and its rootedness in the structural dynamics of neoliberal economies. Following this, we offer a discussion of relati...

Over five years of ethnographic research in Monrovia, Liberia (1973—8), I was engaged in research in a mud-pathed alley at the edge of the commercial district, lined with 20 shacks, housing 100 Vai and Gola tailors, their treadle sewing machines, and 150 apprentices.
