|Title: ||Vocational school interdisciplinary as a key to success|
|Authors: ||Clausen, Trond|
|Issue Date: ||2004 |
|Abstract: ||Since 1977 the Law of Secondary Training has
governed Norwegian secondary schools, regardless if they
were offering theoretical or practical training. Through
this quarter of a century, the practical training offered by
the vocational school has changed significantly, thanks to
tight links between the Ministry, the employers'
confederations and the Labor Organization. These
powerful partners have methodically changed the scope
and content of the vocational schools in particular from
traditional training to a theoretically based training
resembling technical education. "Interdisciplinary" has
been a keyword governing the transformation process.
On the other hand, carrying out interdisciplinary has also
contributed to concealing the value of the "new"
vocational school as an important source of engineering
school recruitment. Thus, the interdisciplinary learning
program for the training of electricians is described and
test results presented indicating why vocational school
graduates are now considered attractive applicants for
electrical engineering programs.|
