Call for Papers

The JVET Conference Committee invites contributions to our successful biennial international conference. This meeting has provided 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 field of inquiry. For 2019, the Committee is interested in the following themes, though this list should not be seen as prescriptive or exhaustive:

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

The conference will include a stream on teaching and teachers in technical and vocational education and further education. We invite submissions on teacher development and preparation, continuing professional development, challenges in teaching in vocational education and other issues associated with teaching and teachers in technical and vocational education.

In addition to paper presentations, the Conference Committee have identified space in the programme for up to two symposia, and would welcome proposals related to the conference themes.

For paper presentations, please submit a 400-word abstract, and, for symposia, please submit a 600-word proposal including the names and affiliations of participants, by 31 January 2019 here
