About this book

Benefiting from the support and involvement of two major international research networks, this collection features the latest research findings in TVET. Members of INAP, the International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship, and VETNET, the Vocational Education and Training Network, have contributed key research findings to this detailed survey of the field. Featuring the inclusion of the internationally recognized memorandum released in April 2012 by the INAP Architecture Apprenticeship Commission, the volume covers a wealth of issues relating to technical and vocational education and training, including exemplar architectures such as successful school-to-work transitions, competence assessment and development models, and governance, including the role of stakeholders. The book provides many opportunities to explore in depth the scholarly debate on TVET, as well as to learn from positive international experiences. It aims to inform the practice of TVET professionals as much as the decision making of administrators.

Reviews

This publication admirably demonstrates the technical and bureaucratic obstacles to advancing skills and resolving the current dilemmas of youth school to work transitions – and for those new to the field illustrates the political complexities of seemingly neutral vocational educational systems and framework classifications.

The editors have compiled a compelling vision that despite diverse national formulations, innovative apprenticeships have the potential to mitigate the current dramatic levels of international youth unemployment and a template for future research in transitional and developing economies.
