Abstract [en]

Thisarticle discusses the contemporary discourse of ‘quality’ in upper secondaryvocational education in Sweden. The study is based on a selection of governmentpolicy texts that preceded the reform of upper secondary education in 2011. Thepurpose is to present how the concept of quality gets its meaning, and todiscuss this from a perspective of competence, knowledge and qualification inorder to renegotiate the concept of quality. Hence, the article also discusseshow an extended quality concept could contribute to a changed view of Swedishupper secondary vocational education and training (VET) from an economic,individual and social point of view, in terms of both content andattractiveness. A widened approach to quality in VET could lead to a change inthe view of, and the discussion about, VET as such. Our purpose is to emphasizethe importance of a broader understanding of how quality in VET can beunderstood and offer a more nuanced and expanded understanding to thecontemporary discourse of VET quality, and thus offer opportunities for a moreattractive VET.
