  4. 4. The institutionalisation of validation and the transformation of vocational knowledge The case of admission into Vocational Teacher Education in Sweden

    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; agency; competence; institutional arrangements; institutional conditions; institutionalisation; validation; vocational knowledge; qualification framework; Pedagogics and Educational Sciences; Pedagogik och Utbildningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to understand the validation of vocational knowledge prior to entry into vocational teacher education in Sweden with regard to conceptions and understandings of vocational knowledge, and also to understand how institutional conditions, such as ideas of how to organise validation, influence the content and form of the validation practice. From this aim the following research questions were developed: What ideas about the organisation of validation stand out in the policy and practice of validation? What conceptions and understandings of vocational knowledge is the organisation of validation built on and what do they entail? Who has the agency to describe and decide upon vocational knowledge in the policy and practice of validation? What institutional arrangements appear in the practice of validation?To conduct the studies in the thesis a multimethods approach was adopted, combining policy analysis and interviews. READ MORE
