The transition from school to vocational education is of different quality and performance in the diverse national VET systems and heavily determined by the different structures of governance in the national education and VET systems. In September 2009, the International Network on Innovative Apprenticeship (INAP) hosted its third international conference in Turin bringing together leading researchers in the area of international TVET research.
This book summarises all topics discussed within the frame of the Turin conference and overviews current research and analysis in the following fields:
Managing successful transitions from school to work
Building vocational identity
Competence evaluation and development in VET
Levels of governance and the role of stakeholders in apprenticeships
