Vocational Education & Training (VET) - Revisiting history in search for learning
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Education. (VETYL Vocational Education & Training/Yrkeskunnande och Lärande)
2012 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Vocational Education and Training (VET) currently faces challenges from 'new' work market demands and policy changes. The agreement of EU member states concerning the so called European Qualifications Framework (EQF) lead to the design of National Qualification Framework (NQF).

With a historical perspective the paper looks at the development of VET in Sweden and Finland aiming to elucidate experiences from earlier developments of national qualifications' frameworks. Arguably NQF is considered rather a novelty in the development of this field at national levels. By searching into earlier developments the papers intends to bring forward what could be valuable learning for the developments ahead
