Abstract [en]

The social phenomenon we call Vocational Education and Training (VET) has as its point of departure the connection of two other social phenomena: "vocation" and "education". Educa-tion is related to pedagogy in the general sense of "upbringing" and "learning something". In VET this "education/learning" is about the "vocation" but what is the term vocation relating to? Skill? No doubt people are supposed to learn something in VET which we might call "skills. Indeed, what defines a certain vocation could be viewed as a certain skill, in the senses of, either something generic or something empirical. Skill can be either what people do, and are supposed to be able to do, performing a certain vocation. Or, skill could mean something generic, something typical of people performing a certain vocation. In this latter case skill is not the ability to perform a certain technique but instead represents an understanding of a sub-ject matter, e.g plumbing: It represents an understanding of a certain activity, using different techniques. In this paper I discuss what VET can mean independently of today's society; e.g. immanently.
