Challenging the vocational education and training for development orthodoxy

The orthodox account of vocational education and training for development is firmly based in Neoliberal assumptions about the primacy of the economic. Yet, there are a range of alternative accounts of development, receiving increasing attention, that stress the importance of a wider vision of humanity and human development. At the same time, there are longstanding, though more marginal, traditions of seeing vocational education as having a moral purpose, linked to learning to becoming more human. This paper seeks to connect these two traditions to offer a new way of thinking about VET for development.
