Prospects for mutual learning and transnational transfer of innovative practice in European vocational education and training
The intention of this paper is to contribute to wider European debates about mutual learning and the prospects for transnational transfer of innovative practice. I will do this by examining two issues. The first concerns the extent to which Dutch ideas about the use of ‘core problems’ in vocational education and training could usefully be applied to ‘vocational’ higher education in the U.K. The second draws upon lessons learned from a review of different approaches to the assessment of non-formal learning across Europe. Each of these themes will be examined in turn.
