Abstract [en]

Vocational education and training is amongst the educational areas drawing the biggestattention by mass media and a key topic of political debate in Sweden. This is byno means surprising if we take into account that nearly half of Swedish youngster followsany of the vocational training lines offered at upper secondary education. But, isthis a unique ´Swedish discussion`? Are there other international frame factors influencingand some how conditioning the discussion about the strategic importance ofVET? If, so which are these frame factors? This paper attempts to give initial answer tothese questions by contextualizing VET discussion in Sweden from an internationalperspective that includes social transformations from modernity to the so called postmodernityand the impact on work market demands. The paper present these newdemands, as well as qualifications required. The chapter uses a wide range of referencesthat includes Education For All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report of 2012 focused onthe third goal of Education for All, that is to ensure that all young people have the opportunityto acquire skills. The urgency of reaching this goal has sharpened acutelysince 2000 as a consequence of a global economic downturn impacting on unemployment.The paper intends to contribute to better understanding of the challenges as wellto create awareness and encourage discussion in different contexts and levels, that isvocational school, VET teacher training, policy making and VET planning.
