Call for papers on inclusive working environment
Part of: 10th Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) International Conference 28-30 June 2017, Brunel Business School, Brunel University London, UK
The proposed stream 5 "Developing an inclusive working environment through effective training" aims to examine and evaluate three key areas: (1) to explore how dominant discourses within literature exert an institutional power on the rhetoric and practice of diversity training, related to the multifaceted social constructs of diversity; (2) to evaluate whether diversity training could be seen as a possible solution to address discrimination and social differences across borders; (3) to identify and assess different training practices that allow individuals to critically evaluate, debate and assess the impact of their own beliefs, values and prejudices. Possible themes include but are not restricted to: perceptions of diversity training; training evaluation and measurement methods; effects of training on learning and innovation in organisations; training practices and discrimination; political, social and economic identity, workplace fairness; organisational engagement; organisational moral obligations; diversity mindset and training (see details of Stream 5). Important dates: Please submit your manuscript via the conferences website: http://www.edi-conference.org/ Submissions to the conference can be in the form of long abstracts (5 pages minimum: length to be specified by stream and workshop chairs) and full papers by the deadline of April 28th 2017. Stream Convenors: Dr Valerie Caven <valerie.caven@ntu.ac.uk> and Dr Stefanos Nachmias <stefanos.nachmias@ntu.ac.uk>.

Projects

ENLIVEN - LLL for an Inclusive and Vibrant Europe
We would like to draw your attention to the Horizon 2020 funded project ENLIVEN, Encouraging Lifelong Learning for an Inclusive and Vibrant Europe. ENLIVEN is a three years project that aims to inform policy makers on how to successfully implement adult education and training as a means to reduce inequalities and social disadvantages, and to improve the workforce. ENLIVEN explores adult education policies, its funding and opportunity structures and explores the system characteristics of adult education structures in Europe, drawing on comparative research data, including the Labour Force Survey, PIAAC and the Adult Education Survey. Specific attention is also paid to workplace learning, drawing on case studies. The development of an Intelligent Decision Support System is one of the core tasks aiming to help the team in generating policy impact. The project runs until 30 September 2019 and is coordinated by Professor John Holford, The University of Nottingham, UK. Updates are regularly posted on www.h2020enliven.organd you can follow us on Twitter @h2020enliven

New project: EffectVPL
The project "Effectiveness of VPL (Validation of Prior Non-formal and Informal Learning) Policies and Programmes for Labour Market Inclusion and Mobility - Individual and Employer Perspectives" addresses the effectiveness of validation in terms of how the recognition of prior learning benefits the individual, in particular their labour market inclusion, employability and participation in further learning. The Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership comprises a cooperation of eight institutions from adult/vocational education and recognition practice in Denmark, Germany, Poland and Turkey. The project partners will (1) assess the advancement of VPL policies and programmes in their countries over the project period, (2) conduct an empirical investigation with individuals based on biographical approaches and (3) explore the role of employers for supporting validation procedures. The results of the project will be channelled into the on-going VPL policy dialogue and be adopted to jointly develop a training module to support VPL practitioners. We invite related projects and interested individuals to contact us to foster the continuous exchange of experience. The project is coordinated by the University of Bremen, for more information see project page

VET4LEC- Inclusive VET for low energy construction
Inclusive Vocational Education and Training for Low Energy Construction (VET4LEC) is a European Commission project (2017-2018) coordinated by the European Construction Industry Federation and the European Federation of Building and Woodworkers. Project partners are from trade unions and employer associations in Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, and possibly Germany. The University of Westminster team of external experts consists of Professor Linda Clarke, Dr Colin Gleeson and Dr Melahat Sahin-Dikmen, plus Professor Christopher Winch from Kings College London. The construction sector has particular responsibility for meeting the European Union (EU) greenhouse gas emissions reduction target of 'at least 40% by 2030'. The EU Build Up skills programme, addressing VET requirements for LEC, has highlighted insufficient coordination between occupations and inadequate VET as barriers to increasing energy efficiency in the built environment. It is the task of this project to identify the changes required to overcome barriers and the problems involved in enacting these at site level. The objectives include: Comparing exemplary LEC case study projects in each country; Evaluating interdisciplinarity and LEC knowledge, skill and competences (KSC) in VET; Providing criteria for a core energy literacy curriculum compatible with the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).

Reducing Inequalities through lifelong learning
Annual Conference of the LLL Platform (http://lllplatform.eu/) "Education in a Digital World <Reducing Inequalities through Lifelong Learning>"31 May to 01 June 2017 - Tallinn, Estonia
Digitalisation is continually growing and will inevitably affect all sectors. Yet we still struggle to understand the extent of it, and few are fully prepared for it: there is a change in the nature of the race between man and the machine, and the machine is running faster. The challenge of education in a digital world compels us to open education as widely as possible to include everyone, through flexible pathways and innovative thinking in order to enable all to adapt to yet unknown developments. How can lifelong learning answer these challenges in order to ensure universal access to digital education? Check out the programme on the Conference page
and register now!

VET in times of economic crisis
Matthias Pilz (Ed.). Vocational Education and Training in Times of Economic Crisis: Lessons from Around the World. Series "Technical and Vocational Education and Training: Issues, Concerns and Prospects", Vol. 24. Springer 2017
This book brings together a broad range of approaches and methodologies relevant to international comparative vocational education and training (VET). Revealing how youth in transition is affected by economic crises, it provides essential insights into the strengths and weaknesses of the various systems and prospects of VET in contexts ranging from North America to Europe (e.g. Spain, Germany or the UK) and to Asia (e.g. China, Thailand and India). Though each country examined in this volume is affected by the economic crisis in a different way, the effects are especially apparent for the younger generation. In many countries the youth unemployment rate is still very high and the job perspectives for young people are often limited at best. The contributions in this volume demonstrate that VET alone cannot solve these problems, but can be used to support a smooth transition from school to work. If the quality of VET is high and the status and job expectations are good, VET can help to fill the skills gap, especially at the intermediate skill level. Furthermore, VET can also offer a realistic alternative to the university track for young people in many countries. Find more information at http://www.springer.com/de/book/9783319478548

Vocational education - making the invisible visible
Ute Hippach-Schneider, Verena Schneider, Boris Ménard & Sabine Tritscher-Archan (2017). The underestimated relevance and value of vocational education in tertiary education - making the invisible visible. Journal of Vocational Education & Training. Volume 69, Issue 1 [Details]
Increasing the number of tertiary graduates has been a priority on the political agenda of the EU for several years. However, the focus has mainly been on academic courses, with less emphasis on the role of vocational education and training. International educational statistics indeed show a clear increase in the number of persons completing tertiary education programmes in recent years. In overall terms, this development is referred to as 'academisation'. The present paper provides a critical analysis and uses examples from Germany, Austria and France to show that this interpretation is neglecting two crucial facts. One is that various academic programmes in fact are combining academic with vocational learning. The other is that there are vocational programmes in the tertiary education sector that are not adequately visible in international education statistics. This understanding is important in relation to future policy-making as well as individual decision-making.

School-based model of VET in Finland and Sweden
M. Virolainen & D. Persson Thunqvist (2017). Varieties of universalism: post-1990s developments in the initial school-based model of VET in Finland and Sweden and implications for transitions to the world of work and higher education. Journal of Vocational Education & Training. Volume 69, Issue 1 [Details]
The Nordic countries are often referred to as a group even though their education systems and training models are very different. The aim of this study is to advance understanding of those differences and compare the developments and organisation of initial vocational education and training (IVET) in Finland and Sweden since the 1990s as examples of school-based models of IVET in statist regimes. The research questions address the following: how these two countries have institutionalised school-based IVET since the 1990s; the kinds of legislative reforms that have been decisive for the construction of school-based IVET; and how the models of school-based IVET in these two countries allow access to higher education and the world of work. The analysis shows the heterogeneity of the statist model of school-based IVET systems in two Nordic countries and underlines differences with respect to school-to-work transitions between IVET and different labour market sectors.

Dual apprenticeship structures in the United States
Michael Gessler (2017). Educational Transfer as Transformation: A Case Study about the Emergence and Implementation of Dual Apprenticeship Structures in a German Automotive Transplant in the United States. Vocations and Learning. Volume 10, Issue 1 [Details]
The apprenticeship system in Germany is carried out both by companies and vocational schools (the Dual System). The question of whether the German Dual System is transferable is currently being asked in VET research. The analysis of current transfer discourses alludes to a research desideratum: the actual approaches consider either the input or the output of an educational transfer, but the transfer process in relation to its input and output has not been investigated to date. We focus on this desideratum. In the present case study, the process emergence and implementation of dual apprenticeship structures are analysed in relation to its input and output in a German automotive transplant in the United States. Transplant organisations provide an ideal case to explore the transfer phenomenon because they have been transferred from a familiar context to a foreign context. The central findings of the case study are: firstly, that growing contradictions in the production system triggered the implementation process; secondly, that the original Dual System was transformed within the implementation process; and thirdly, that this transformation led to innovative solutions. These findings may not be valid for every transfer at any time, but they reflect the fact that educational transfer of dual apprenticeship structures can be more than just a more or less successful imitation or adaptation.
