Abstract [en]

This article reports on VET teachersᅵ engagements in boundary processes between schools and workplaces in connection with studentsᅵ workplace learning, the conditions for such boundary processes, and how these activities may enable VET teachersᅵ continuing professional development (CPD). Thirty VET teachers have been interviewed and their replies have been analysed in a theoretical framework of situated learning. The VET teachers described two main forms of boundary processes: boundary encounters and brokering by VET students. These processes support the occupational learning of VET teachers to different degrees. Teachersᅵ access to the workplace and their engagement and involvement in work and social interactions influence the potential for learning. Structural factors in school practices determine the nature of the boundary processes experienced by VET teachers and hence, the conditions for VET teachersᅵ CPD.
