02 SES 04 C, VETNET VET-research Framework
Vocational education and training (VET) is a multidisciplinary and multifaceted applied research field. Research is driven by practical, social, political, and scientific interests. The aim of the panel discussion is to further elaborate an analytical framework on VET research. The framework aims to integrate current VET research, to identify research gaps and to develop a proposal on future research. A first draft of the framework has been discussed during the first VET Skills Week 2016, organised by the European Commission, and further developed at the Crossing Boundaries Conference 2017 in Rostock, and the second VET Skills Week 2017.
The framework organises VET research along three analytical levels and three analytical foci.
The analytical foci highlight the role and needs of the learners or students, the trainers and teachers and the object or work process. They take into account that VET is on education and training and on becoming a subject specific expert and a professional expert in a specific vocational area.
The analytical levels highlight the role of individuals (micro-level), schools and enterprises (meso-level), as well as educational policy and society (macro-level). They take into account the interdependence of individual, and institutional actors.
This model aims at integrating not only different needs expressed by the participants with respect to their region or country, but also different scientific theories and methods. It reflects the country-specific status of VET, as well as it social and cultural embeddedness and historical context. It acknowledges that VET research is always embedded in a socio-political-historical context in a way that one solution cannot fit all needs.
