Metrics details. This review provides an overview of the empirical research concerning guidance in the context of vocational education and training VET. The study examines practices, providers and supporting and hindering factors related to guidance and learning at the workplace. Results show strong evidence for the collective nature of workplace guidance, with the entire work community providing learners with guidance and assistance. Guidance provided to VET students at workplaces seems to relate strongly to the activities of the members of communities of practice. Guidance provided by the members of communities of practice opens up opportunities for learners to participate in collective practices by gradually assuming more responsibility and more demanding tasks as their skills develop.
