Educational reform in VET in Germany, England and Austria

This project is concerned with the connections between new curricula and the processes of teaching and learning in vocational education and training (VET).

It investigates curricular reforms in college-based VET in Germany, England and Austria and aims to find out to what extent these changes have resulted in innovative teaching and learning processes.

The central assumption of this project is that changes in the regulatory environment and political desire to expand Higher Education which require increasing transition rates between VET and HE will have an impact on the work of lecturers and teachers working in college-based VET contexts. These impacts range from changes in the self-perception of teachers to the way they deal with new curricula resulting from regulatory changes.
