Abstract [en]

This paper explores challenges when introducing an Apprenticeship Education pathway in the Swedish uppersecondary VET. It draws on research on a national pilot project on Apprenticeship Education funded by the Swedish National Agency for Education.The paper emphases on the workplace learning and illuminates some challenges that were recognized during the pilot project. One main challenge was findingworkplaces that wanted to participate in the apprenticeship training. Another concerned the production of the participating workplaces which was commonly not broad enough to give a wide VET education according to the curriculum requirements. A third main challenge was the supervision and guiding structures at the workplaces. The study concludes that there were fundamental differences in the quality of the Apprenticeship Education. It is also concluded that Apprenticeship Education has great potentials if accessible resources are provided – in schools as well as at workplaces.
