Martínez-Morales, Ignacio; Marhuenda-Fluixá, Fernando – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2020
In this study, we argue that vocational education and training in Spain have increased their status and value over the past four decades at a steady and consistent pace. This pace has been perhaps too slow for the wishes of some but has been properly grounded on a wide consensus among all involved stakeholders (companies, union representatives and…

Emmenegger, Patrick; Graf, Lukas; Trampusch, Christine – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2019
Collective training systems are based on the cooperation of multiple public and private stakeholders in order to work.

In this conceptual paper, we first review the political economy…

Hyland, Terry – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2019
Researchers investigating learning from primary to higher education have emphasised the crucial role of embodiment in the process of developing knowledge, skills and expertise.

van Houten, Maarten Matheus – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2018
The Netherlands has a binary higher education system in which academic education and higher professional education at EQF levels 5-8 co-exist. There is also secondary vocational education at EQF levels 1 up to 4. In this paper, I analyse policy documents resulting from the Bologna Process and argue that under neo-liberal conditions, higher…

Hippach-Schneider, Ute; Schneider, Verena; Ménard, Boris; Tritscher-Archan, Sabine – Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2017
Increasing the number of tertiary graduates has been a priority on the political agenda of the EU for some years. The focus has mainly been on academic courses though, with less emphasis on the role of vocational education and training. International educational statistics indeed show a clear increase in the number of persons completing tertiary…
