By Daniel Bishop, Alan Felstead, Alison Fuller, Nick Jewson, Tracey Lee and Lorna Unwin


This working paper is Research Paper No. 5 of a series produced for Learning as Work: Teaching and Learning Processes in the Contemporary Work Organisation, an ESRC Teaching and Learning Programme (TLRP) Phase III funded project (2003 - 2008). It is available from the respective literatures on organisational\ud cultures and workplace learning are fairly well\ud developed, the potential insights to be gained from\ud combining the two have been largely ignored. The\ud primary aim of this paper is to connect some of the main\ud themes in the two literatures. In particular, the paper\ud highlights some of the ways in which organisational\ud cultures and subcultures can support – or inhibit –\ud workplace learning. It is hoped that the paper provides a\ud starting point for understanding more precisely the types\ud of assumptions, beliefs and practices that might support\ud workplace learning, thus providing a possible\ud foundation for the construction of a model of a learningsupportive\ud culture
