Working Out Change

Systemic Innovation in Vocational Education and Training

image of Working Out Change

This book analyses systemic innovation in education by looking at the ways in which educational systems encourage innovation, the knowledge base and processes used, and the procedures and criteria used to assess progress and evaluate outcomes. It draws on findings from 14 case studies in Vocational Education and Training in six OECD countries: Australia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Mexico and Switzerland. The resulting analysis helps us understand how we can support and sustain innovation in educational systems in the VET sector.




Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This report presents the main findings of the OECD Centre for educational research and innovation (CERI) project on Systemic innovation in vocational education and training (VET). the project was undertaken during 2007 and 2008 as part of a wider CERI commitment to research systemic innovation, which also included a sister project on Digital Learning resources as Systemic innovation. Additionally, the education and training Policy Division of the OECD Directorate for education has carried out a policy review on VET, whose first phase has produced a report entitled Learning for Jobs. Both parallel strands of work have to be considered responses to the request made by OECD member states to emphasise the VET sector.
