Call for Papers

The JVET Conference 2015 ‘Call for Papers’ is now closed. All applicants have been notified if their paper has been accepted and how they can book a place.

The JVET Conference

Is a highly successful bi-annual international conference. This meeting has been providing a lively and critical forum for debates concerning all aspects of vocational education and training and developments in work and learning since 1995. This call for papers is, therefore, open to all contributions that seek to enrich this eclectic field of inquiry. For 2015, the Committee is interested in the following themes, though this list should not been seen as prescriptive:

  • The impact of changes in work on VET
  • The impact of global economic change on VET
  • VET and climate change
  • Vocational knowledge
  • Higher VET
  • VET pedagogy
  • The changing institutional context of VET
  • Hybrid VET qualifications and programmes
  • Comparative studies of VET
  • VET Policymaking
  • Inclusion and exclusion in VET
  • Curriculum and assessment policies and practices

Any inquiry about the conference can be addressed to jvetconference@hotmail.co.uk.

  • Kiran Mirchandani, OISE, University of Toronto –   Challenging race, gender and class stratification through VET in practice. 
  • Thomas Bailey, Community College Research Center, Teachers College, Columbia University –  The Community College Role in Education for Middle Skill Jobs in the United States.
