    Qualified vocational education beyond 2000: a report from a pilot project in Sweden2000In: European Vocational Training Journal, ISSN 0378-5068, no 21, p. 7-15Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new form of qualified vocational education (QVE) was introduced as a pilot project in Sweden. QVE is a ew form of post-secondary education, long equested by industry. In QVE, onethird of instructional time is advanced pplication of theoretical knowledge at a workplace. This article reports on the evaluation of the pilot project and suggests that QVE has been successful. It goes on to discuss four options for continuing QVE in Sweden - but the choice belongs to the political process.

    Flexibility within vocational education and training in Sweden: the case of advanced vocational education2002Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Advanced vocational education (AVE) is since January 1st 2002 an established post-secondary education in Sweden. With AVE one third of the course time is devoted to advanced application of theoretical knowledge at a workplace. From its start in year 1996 as a pilot project, over 5000 students have today graduated from the approximately 250 different AVE programs available. The purpose with this paper is to present findings from a research project focusing on what has happened with the 5000 students after they have graduated, entering the labour market. The significance of this paper is that it uses unique longitudinal data from three sets of student questionnaires collected in year 1999, 2000 and 2001 by LuleΠUniversity of Technology and Statistics Sweden. The paper concludes with a general discussion on flexibility and lifelong learning within the Swedish system of vocational education and training. The research project is supported by Swedish office of Labour Market Policy Evaluation

    From conflicting interests to collective consent in advanced vocational education: policymaking and the role of stakeholders in Sweden2004In: Journal of Education and Work, ISSN 1363-9080, E-ISSN 1469-9435, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 257-277Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study considers the policymaking process of forming a new tertiary vocational education and training (VET) policy in Sweden during the 1990s, and the influence that external stakeholders played in that process. Since the late 1960s onwards, the VET system in Sweden has been mainly integrated with general and school-based education. Due to the changes in working life VET has recently undergone a transformation process moving towards a more demand-led mode of functioning. Following perhaps the most significant education policymaking process on the reform of advanced vocational education, the study by analysing requirements and policy recommendations made by the six largest employer, employee and public education bodies from 1995 to 2000, suggests that private industry and commerce managed to establish their requirements, while the employee stakeholders made the largest concessions from an ideological standpoint.

    From formulation to realisation: reform in Swedish continuing vocational training : the case of advanced vocational education2004Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis deals with the complexities of planning and implementation of a reform in Swedish continuing vocational training. By complexities it is suggested that vocational education and training (VET) constitutes a contested arena for multiple stakeholders in society. Hence representatives of working life, the State, educationalists and individuals make demands and requirements that VET as an institution should comply with. As this thesis proposes, the complexity has increased further in recent years partly due to the rapid developments in working life and labour markets, and partly due to the on-going deregulation and de-centralisation of the educational system. In general, as this thesis argues, these developments have together created conflicting demands among the stakeholders about how VET should be organised, the mode of delivery and relations towards the labour market. At the same time, the importance of VET is increasingly anticipated due to its potential to support economic growth, and social and cultural integration. The study object of this doctoral thesis is the Swedish reform with Advanced Vocational Education (AVE) which was introduced in 1996 as a pilot project and became a permanent part of the system of continuing vocational training in 2002. Designing the research procedure comprising both the central level educational policymaking activities and the subsequent actions of implementation, the three main questions addressed are: what are the main driving forces behind the formulation of AVE; how is AVE implemented into the system of continuing vocational training; what are the main results and experiences achieved of the reform. Considering the reform of AVE within a theoretical perspective, this doctoral thesis uses the analytical model of educational reform development by Lindensjö and Lundgren. In this acknowledged model, reforms are perceived to taking place at two different contexts in society: the context of formulation and the context of realisation where the former considers the political activities and the latter considering the institutional actions. From a methodological point, this doctoral thesis is designed as a multiple case study with six appended papers, exploring different issues in the reform of AVE. These issues comprise Organisation and Structure, Quality Improvement, Workplace learning and Transition from AVE into working life. Achieving the demands for validity and trustworthiness, this study uses, among other strategies, multiple sources of data gathering, applying data- triangulation. The findings of this doctoral thesis suggest that with AVE a number of educational innovative features were introduced which generally had a positive impact. From the analytical context of formulation, findings suggest that consensus among the central level stakeholders for how AVE should be designed was reached through the joint work of organising programmes during the three-year Pilot project, in combination with the concurrently restructuring of working life. From the context of realisation both educationalists and employers perceived the possibility of designing AVE programmes in co-operation based on local level requirements as positive. Conclusively, most students appreciated AVE as it opened up an opportunity for combining theoretical studies with working at a potential employer thus enhancing their practical skills.

    From formulation to realisation: the process of Swedish reform in advanced vocational education2006In: Education + Training, ISSN 0040-0912, E-ISSN 1758-6127, Vol. 48, no 4, p. 222-240Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - This study aims to consider the complexities of planning and implementation of a reform in the Swedish system of higher vocational education and training (VET). The study object of this article is the Swedish reform with advanced vocational education (AVE). The two main questions the study aims to address are: "What are the main driving forces behind the formulation of AVE?" and "How is AVE implemented into the system of continuing vocational training?". Design/methodology/approach - This study is designed as a multiple case study, exploring different issues in the reform of AVE. These issues comprise organisation and structure, workplace learning and transition from AVE into working life. From a theoretical perspective, this study uses the analytical model of educational reform development by Lindensjo¨ and Lundgren where reforms are perceived to take place at two different contexts in society. Findings - The findings of this study suggest that with AVE a number of educational innovative features were introduced which generally had a positive impact. From the context of formulation, findings suggest that consensus among the central level stakeholders for how AVE should be designed was reached through the joint work of organising programmes during the three-year pilot project, in combination with the concurrent restructuring of working life. From the context of realisation both educationalists and employers perceived the possibility of designing AVE programmes in co-operation based on local level requirements as positive.Research limitations/implications - To achieve demands for validity and trustworthiness, this study uses multiple sources of data gathering, applying data-triangulation. Nonetheless, this study has some methodological limitations that need to be addressed. In terms of theoretical perspective, the analytical model could appear as simplifying the complex social processes that take place when reforms are being implemented in educational institutions and within working life.Originality/value - This study provides evidence that developments in Swedish society and working life have together created conflicting demands among the stakeholders about how VET should be organised, the mode of delivery and relations towards the labour market.

    The impact of lifelong learning on vocational education and training in Sweden2002Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This publication outlines some of the most important trends and reforms that have taken place within the Swedish vocational education and training (VET) system during the 1990s. It discusses how educational policy makers in Sweden are trying to find new combinations of the traditional apprenticeship model and the dual system on the one hand, and the use of a more integrated system on the other. It suggests that lifelong learning has to be analysed in a more specific context with respect to closing specific skill shortages and implementing social, economic and institutional measures to enhance skill upgrading, on-the-job training and lifelong learning for various groups.

    Meeting the demand? Students within Swedish advanced vocational education entering the labour market: reflections from an ongoing research project2003In: European Educational Research Journal (online), ISSN 1474-9041, E-ISSN 1474-9041, Vol. 2, no 1, p. 107-125Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article considers an ongoing research project concerning the outcome of the Swedish reform of advanced vocational education (AVE) from a graduate perspective. Launched in 1996 as an experimental post-secondary reform meeting the advancements within working life, several new educational features were introduced. In January 2002, AVE became a regular part of the national education system with 12,500 education places per annum. From start to present, over 6,100 students have graduated from the approximately 350 different national AVE programmes available. The purpose of this article is to present results from three sets of questionnaires collected in 1999, 2000 and 2001 surveying over 5,400 of the graduates concerning their opinions and experiences on how AVE corresponds to the demands and requests made of them when entering the labour market. The aggregate results suggest that a majority of the graduates (82%) had a job 6 months after having completed their AVE programmes and that approximately 80% of them were working, with regard to their educational focus, within a ‘target' field of profession.

    Among demons and angels: attitudes towards system evaluation for quality improvement in advanced vocational education2002In: Quality in Higher Education, ISSN 1353-8322, E-ISSN 1470-1081, Vol. 8, no 2, p. 127-136Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates attitudes among educational organisations towards the use of system evaluation for quality improvement in Swedish higher education. The subject of this investigation is the evaluation of the pilot project on advanced vocational education (AVE), which was conducted between 1997 and 1999 by a research team at the Luleå Technological University. The investigation was carried out in the form of a telephone inquiry with a strategic selection of the education organisers. The investigation shows that 65% of the respondents regard the work of the research team, built on the system-evaluation model, as an instrument to inspire confidence and contribute to renewal.
