Tiivistelmä

In this chapter, the current changes in Finnish Vocational Education and Training are analysed. At first, a short history of vocational training is introduced to better understand the present. The reform of the Finnish VET took place in Finland just when writing this, during the academic year of 2017-2018. The analysis is based on mapping the threats and strengths of the renewed VET system. In the argumentation, the authors rely on some relevant research knowledge, official statistics and the documents of the Finnish national educational administration authorities, the Ministry of Education and Culture (MoEC) and the Finnish National Agency of Education
(EDUFI). Finally, by using Resnick’s (2010) model of policy-planning components, the chapter identifies three dilemmas assosiated with deploying the new Finnish VET policies into schools’ everyday life.
