Values in vocational education and training

Coverbild: BWP 4/2019

In a society that is characterised by rapid acceleration and technological change, debate about values is becoming increasingly important. What role do values-based and socially responsible behaviour play in business and the world of work? And how can values be integrated into VET? These articles consider these questions conceptually and provide insights into practical education work. In this edition, you can find numerous proposals for combining values orientation and the teaching of skills in VET.
