National Qualifications Frameworks and the Dual Model of Vocational Training in International Cooperation
Edited By Markus Maurer and Philipp Gonon
Bringing together contributions from authors involved in both the theory and practice of vocational skills training development, this volume analyses the challenges that are tied to the transfer of these two dominant models in the context of international cooperation, sheds light on how they are being implemented, and discusses alternatives to the standard approaches to policy transfer.
The editors thank all those involved in making this book possible. Our particular thanks go to the authors of the contributions in this volume – who had to wait long to see their articles in the final version of the book. Maurice Hutton dedicated his excellent editorial skills proofreading all articles. Within the publishing house of Peter Lang, Friederike Meisner and Benjamin Fröhlich carefully monitored the entire publishing process. The book being an outcome of a conference held at the University of Zurich in September 2012, we also would like to thank NORRAG, ETH/Nadel and the Swiss Forum for Skills Development and International Conference (FoBBIZ) for a fruitful collaboration, as well as the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Jacobs Foundation for their financial support of the conference.
