Abstract [en]

The purpose of this chapter is to present the workplace-based learning that takes place within the publicly funded VET in Sweden at the upper secondary education level. More than an overall background of upper secondary vocational education particular attention is given to the relationship between school-based and work place-based training (apprenticeship), on one side, and how the cooperation between educational suppliers and working life partners is shaped, on the other. In our time of accelerated globalization, where the current and the future status of VET is a priority issue in the discussion agenda of national and international educational policy bodies, it seems that among other challenges the connection between school and working life is urgently important, and a crucial quality dimension of the provided vocational programs. The presentation ends up with some reflections on the future of VET in Sweden with tentative proposals for policy considerations and actions.
