This handbook considers the changing worlds of work to which vocational education and training (VET) must respond, as well as insisting that VET should not be narrowly seen to cater only for the formal economy. Issues of economies of care, the challenge of sustainability, planning, and finance are considered, as are the rise of private provision and the role of training in enterprises of varying sizes. The handbook also considers the evolving nature of vocational learning and how this intersects with curriculum and instruction, with a particular emphasis on the major debates about competence that have characterized the field for a quarter century. Since learning cannot be considered in isolation from teaching or the education of teachers and instructors, this is another strand of the handbook that flows into discussions on the measurement of both instruction and learning. While the learning-teaching relationship is of key importance, recent years have seen growing interest in questions of wider learner support and the handbook also contains a section on this issue. The handbook contains almost 100 chapters from an international group of authors, addressing issues from the perspective of small-scale and detailed empirical work through to national and comparative surveys. The handbook is also future-focused in identifying promising new directions in research and development.
