‘Changing nature and role of VET’ - first publication on analytical framework

16. August 2018 - 14:35

For the 3-years Cedefop* project 'The changing nature and role of VET in Europe' hence results become gradually available.

The first publication to be found on the official project-website discusses how VET (Vocational Education and Training) is usually conceptualised and how this can be transferred into an analytical framework valuable for the whole project. A second paper soon to be published, will deal with the results of an empirical study among the EU28 (+ Iceland and Norway) on diverging national terminologies, definitions, conceptions of VET and their implications on a common European understanding of VET.

More publications concerned with the external factors on VET, changes in I-VET and C-VET as well as VET in lifelong learning and VET on higher levels will follow. In 2018 as the last project year, scenarios on the future of VET will be devised and discussed, for example by collecting experts´ views with an online-survey. An expert workshop taking place on 20 and 21 February 2018 in Thessaloniki will be an important milestone to draft scenarios and kick-off the survey.
