The Danish VET-system – a neglected field of research
Research into the Danish VET-system (Vocational & Education Training) is minimal compared to the resources invested in e.g. research into upper secondary school. The amount of resources invested in research into this field has never been very impressive, but today it is experiencing a growing interest, which has to do with the shift of focus from teaching to learning and consequently, there has been an increase in research into learning processes taking place outside the institutionalized framework of the educational system. This article is an attempt to outline the state of art and point to areas where more research is needed.
