Abstract [en]

A starting argument of the paper is the need to increase internationalization in VET teacher education as a key step to develop the readiness and competences that VET teachers need to deal with ongoing challenges in training the kind of skilled worked that present and near future society demands. In times where international mobility of labor forces is a reality and the so-called soft skills are essential aspects in VET programs, the overall and holistic training of teachers is of major importance. This includes amongst other not only having multiskilling but social skills such as intercultural understanding and intercultural competence. Students and staff mobility as well as other forms of cross-national cooperation in teacher training are indeed relevant to reach the present written and unwritten goals of VET teacher education.

The case of two research schools of didactics VET is presented to exemplify ways in which internationalization in VET research and teacher education can be enacted.
