Lessons from the reform of the Danish VET programmes
The reform of the foundational courses of Danish VET-programmes which took place in 2000 aimed at increasing inclusion and retention of disadvantaged students as well as raising the general prestige of VET by introducing greater flexibility in course structure and organisation, among others, by means of modularisation, the creation of occupational families, and flexible student intake. Focusing particularly on the reform of the technical programmes, this article describes important elements of the reform and its outcomes on the basis of current research and concludes by discussing policymaking lessons to be learnt from the Danish efforts.
