About the Project
Vocational teacher education is often situated within a national context, as in the case in Scotland. Some countries (such as Finland) do offer international vocational teacher training programmes, but generally only limited opportunities are available for trainees to engage with the international context of vocational education. Training for vocational educators has to support a process of identity transformation from professional in a profession, to professional teacher. To support the development of skills and competencies for work in the global economy, opportunities to expand this identity to that of global educator warrant further exploration.
This project will seek to:
1. undertake a comparative examination of key issues driving practice in vocational education in a range of comparator countries to identify the attributes of a global vocational educator
2. examine how issues are addressed within the local vocational teacher education curriculum, exploring both pedagogical approaches and logistical issues such as accreditation and flexibility.
3. investigate the impact of national and international programmes on individual participants, particularly in connection with the development of their identity as global educators.
Please note that this project does not have funding attached.
