|Abstract: ||This article compares and contrasts the policy context of Vocational Education
Teacher Training (VETT) in Scotland and England by setting this within its wider
socio-economic context, one emphasising lifelong learning and competitiveness.
This facilitates a comparison of the two nations and enables an analysis of VETT
responses to globalisation and lifelong learning. It allows an exploration of
policy continuities and breaks across Scotland and England, leading to a
consideration of the limits and possibilities of the different 'solutions'
adopted. In these nations VETT is somewhat marginal having only recently become
mandatory, unlike many other European responses. The article's policy analysis
is complemented by a small scale illuminative case study of VETT educators in
Scotland and England, which explores the way policy is lived and mediated at the
site of practice. The research suggests that whilst both systems are
compromised, VETT educators seek to work on the 'good' side of the system in
which they are placed.|
