Learning territories in upper secondary apprenticeship education in Sweden
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Education.
2013 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In i autumn 2008 the Swedish government initiated a three years long national pilot project with Upper Secondary Apprenticeship Education (USAE) before launching a major reform in autumn 2011.This paper reflects on outcomes of two studies with pedagogical focus made in the USAE pilot project. The issue of this paper is to describe what kind of “learning territories” (Fuller & Unwin 2004) that were visible in the USAE. Apprenticeship relies predominantly on the extent and richness of possibilities to participate in diverse communities of practice (Wenger 1998) and to what kind of guidance apprentices’ will receive at workplaces (Billett 2009). The vocational learning also depends on what kind of basic and complementary vocational knowledge that is made accessible in school-based education. The outcomes showed varying “learning territories” that offered apprentices dissimilar kinds of learning opportunities regarding the apprentices’ possibilities to develop vocational knowledge at workplaces and at school.
