Book Description

A collection of the practices; theories; and policies of vocational education and training written by international experts

The Wiley Handbook of Vocational Education and Training (PDF) offers an in-depth guide to the theories; policies; and practices of vocational education and training (VET). With contributions from a panel of leading international scholars; the Handbook contains 27 authoritative essays from a wide range of disciplines. The contributors present an integrated analysis of the complex and dynamic field of VET.

Drawing on the most recent research; thinking; and practice in the field; the ebook explores the key debates about the role of VET in the education and training systems of various nations. The Handbook reveals how expertise is developed in an age of considerable transformation in work organization; work processes; and occupational identities. The authors also examine many of the challenges of vocational education and training such as the impact of digital technologies on employment; the demand for (re)training in the context of extended working lives; the emergence of learning regions and skill ecosystems; and the professional development of vocational teachers and trainers.

This important textbook:

  • Draws on both recent research as well as historical accounts
  • Reviews how developments in digital technologies are changing VET practice
  • Discusses the challenges for universities offering higher vocational education programs
  • Explores how VET is shaped in different ways by the political economy of different countries
  • Offers an original view of VET’s role in both the initial and continuing development of expertise
  • Presents various models of learning used in VET; including apprenticeship; and their relationship with general education
  • Examines the theories and concepts that underpin international perspectives and explores the differences in the purposes of VET

Written for researchers; students; and scholars in the fields of educational studies; human resource development; political economy; social policy; labor market economics; industrial relations; sociology; The Wiley Handbook of Vocational Education and Training offers an international perspective on the topic of VET.
