02 SES 02 C, Educational Research: Work-Based Learning Policy Developments
Success of WBL strongly depends on the national or regional preconditions and traditions. There is considerable evidence that the simple “export” of examples of apparent good practice fails (e. g. Lauterbach 2003) especially where there is no consideration taken of the preconditions in the target country or region. The approach taken in this study to the transfer of good practice entails two aspects. First, there is the extent to which a practice might be transferable from a benchmark country and secondly, the extent to which it can be adopted in the receiving country. Both aspects are strongly influenced by the similarities and differences in context between the benchmark and receiving countries. Consequently, the study focuses on one receiving country (Lithuania). As benchmark countries have we chosen 4 European countries with largely differing approaches in Vocational Education and Training (VET): DE: The dual system in Germany UK: WBL within the fragmented VET-system in the UK NL: The market-oriented system in the Netherlands regulated by strong social partners FR: Work-based learning within the alternating and school-based VET-system in France This project is finalised; presentation will focus on the “lessons learnt” from Lithuanian perspective.
