    Abstract

    This article explores cultural change and situated approaches to learning as a basis for understanding developments in the daily life of the probation organization. These are highlighted in the concept of ‘communities of practice’ that describes learning in the everyday activities of practitioners’ work. It is argued that the future can be changed by greater attention to context specific knowledge-in-use through practitioner research.
