Bonn (GER), October 2019 – EU strategy papers on vocational education and training stress the importance of acquiring key competences in vocational education and training (VET). At the same time, the papers emphasise that there is still a considerable need for action in this area in order to establish these competences in the education system and make them visible.
The article from the BIBB journal Vocational Training in Research and Practice – BWP describes the current state of development in school-based VET in Austria. The focus is on transversal (i.e. interdisciplinary) key competences.
