Conference Paper
Full-text available
Much has been written about the pervasiveness of change within the vocational education and training sector (VET) and much rhetoric has been spoken about the range of factors that are shaping the emerging ‘new’ work of teachers and trainers. Arguably, however, not as much research attention has been paid to the micro world of teachers’ and trainers’ work and the ways in which change has impacted on their daily work practices. While successive waves of training reform indeed embody the outward changes with which teachers and trainers need to wrestle, changes are also occurring ‘out of sight’ in the ways in which teachers and trainers construct and understand their work roles and the relationships they form and manage. This paper reports on a study which examined the nature of the changes being experienced by VET practitioners. Issues relating to the perceived extent and impact of the changes affecting the ways in which VET practitioners think about, organise and carry out their work are explored. Outcomes from the study confirm that, far from being ‘neutral conduits’ through which training reforms flow unhindered, VET practitioners act and respond in various ways to the changes they are experiencing.

Book
Literatura poświęcona podejmowaniu decyzji niemal w ogóle nie odnosi się do procesów decyzyjnych zachodzących w organizacjach oświatowych. Tymczasem, jak dowodzą przeprowadzone badania, większość problemów, z którymi musi poradzić sobie dyrektor szkoły, to problemy niestrukturalizowane, związane z decyzjami nieprogramowalnymi. Dlatego celowe było opracowanie metody wspomagającej podejmowanie takich decyzji wraz z metodyką umożliwiającą stworzenie narzędzia wspomagającego. W monografii podano również przykłady zastosowań.
Book
This 6-volume Handbook covers in detail all of the latest practice in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). Edited by two world-leading authorities on the subject, contributions have come from more than 200 international authors, making this a totally comprehensive text on the subject. The Handbook’s aim is to review the developments that have occurred in TVET and provide pointers to improvements in the field. In this Handbook readers will find information on TVET models from all over the world, reflections on the best and most innovative practice, and dozens of telling case studies. The Handbook presents the work both of established as well as the most promising young researchers, giving it a real cutting edge and features unrivalled coverage of developments in research, policy and practice in TVET. It will assist those involved in TVET at any level in making informed decisions and further advance and improve the field and to bridge the gap between vocational and academic education in the 21st century. This Springer work is particularly relevant today as TVET faces major challenges posed by the move in many countries towards the knowledge-based economy ushered in by new information and communication technologies. Traditional occupations and apprenticeships are affected as the boundaries between manual and mental work fade. National economies are evolving rapidly as market forces take full advantage of the opportunities offered by globalization. Work, of course, has always been a major feature in people’s lives. Not only does it provide them with the means of survival—food, clothing and shelter—but it also has a major impact on their self-identity, social status, standard of living and quality of life. In this respect, the shift from the Industrial Age to the Information Age has considerable implications for education and training. Numerous questions arise from the shift in the global labour marketplace, questions that this volume provides answers to. How do we anticipate change in the labour market? How respond to the dilemma of providing appropriate educational and training courses in a fluid world economy? Governments need reliable mechanisms to predict economic trends and the demand for manpower. Governments, enterprises and trade unions alike must focus on the methodologies of teacher training, curriculum development, the school-to-work transition, gender, and equality and equity. They will need to offer flexible pathways to training, find new ways of moulding human capital, and work out how they cope with unemployment and an ageing workforce—to name only a few. These are just some of the topics addressed in this Handbook. It draws on international experience to identify the best answers and the best procedures to improve TVET, and provides comprehensive coverage of cutting-edge practices in research and policy as we face the vicissitudes of the twenty-first century.
Article
Provides an overview of the research undertaken through the EU Leonardo EUROPROF project. Describes the aims of the project and outlines the methodologies undertaken in the work. Surveys the development of vocational education and training (VET) in Europe over the past two decades in relation to changing forms of work organization and the development of the economies of Europe. First, looks at the changing role of VET, second, examines the corresponding changes in the roles and occupational profiles of vocational teachers and trainers, drawing on empirical studies undertaken by researchers in different countries as part of the EUROPROF project. Finally, proposes a new framework for the education of VET professionals in response to the changing roles and responsibilities.
