Bridging the Gap between Work and Education in Vocational Education and Training. A Study of Norwegian Apprenticeship Training Offices and E-Portfolio Systems
Nore, Haege; Lahn, Leif Christian
Online Submission, International Journal for Research in Vocational Education and Training v1 n1 p21-34 2014
This article explores the effect that the use of e-portfolios initiated and organized by apprenticeship training offices has had on the learning processes and assessment practices of apprentices in Norwegian vocational education and training. Although these intermediate structures have the potential to bridge the gap between work and education, they seem to maintain a system of two parallel learning arenas. However, the article summarizes the innovative effects of these transformations as supportive structures for expansive apprenticeship. The study is based on data from a national project on quality assessment, which is supported by documentary evidence from e-portfolios in three different trades: plumbing, industrial mechanics and sales.
