This paper is relatedto one of the subprojects, ”Sloyd in a changingworld”, with a general issue concerning whatkind of sloyd- and craft-related competence isin demand in society today. Here, the focus ison variations and similarities in content in twovocational programmes related to craft anddesign within Swedish upper secondary educationand the implications of these with regardsto competence. The data produced are based ongroup interviews, designed as three sequentialsessions for collective remembering (Middleton& Edwards, 1990). Activity theoretical aspectsinform the analysis of data. The schools represent different programmes but they all includetextile craft in the main vocational subject. Theidentified similarities and differences in what theteachers want their students to learn is discussedin relation to historically developed traditionsand how these shape the actions that frame thecontent, in order to achieve the sloyd- and craftrelatedcompetencies important for professionalor personal development.
