Li, Junmin; Pilz, Matthias – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
Modularisation of vocational training courses is a major issue across many European countries. Germany has been slow to implement modularisation in its VET system: the prevailing view of modular concepts in the country is one of great scepticism, but there is very little empirical data to inform the debate.

Jenkins, Andrew – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
The importance of people gaining new, and high-level, qualifications in adulthood has been much emphasised in policy rhetoric.

Pilcher, Nick; Fernie, Scott; Smith, Karen – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs) are a global phenomenon. This is evidenced by their scale, coverage and intrinsic link with education policy across Europe and beyond.

Bynner, John – Journal of Education and Work, 2017
This paper relates most closely to David Raffe's writing on "policy borrowing" across countries and across time and his illumination for policy purposes of transition concepts such as "pathways". The discussion makes the point that concepts can both illuminate empirical reality as well as distort it. The paper then moves on to…

Gössling, Bernd – Journal of Education and Work, 2016
This article analyses the development of the first national qualifications framework in Germany ("Deutscher Qualifikationsrahmen" or "DQR").
