Vocations and learning: Studies in Vocational and Professional Education is an international peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for strongly conceptual and carefully prepared manuscripts that inform the broad field of vocational learning. This field includes vocational education, professional education and development,
learning through and for work (paid and unpaid) and working life. The conception of vocations is defined broadly to account for those societally-derived-activities that are important to individuals, and the enactment, continuity and transformation of communities, nations, cultures and economies. The journal will pay attention to such topics as the initial learning and further development of the capacities and dispositions required for work and working life and their remaking and transformation of these capacities and the tools and technologies required for these activities. Accounts of the development of these capacities within individuals and collectives through experiences in schools, colleges, workplaces, universities and other settings will strongly feature in the contributions to the journal. They will be complemented by an equally strong attention to studies of the changing contexts and policy approaches for vocational learning. These contributions can comprise papers that provide either empirically-based accounts, discussions of theoretical perspectives or reviews of literature about vocational learning. In addition, books, reports and policies associated with vocational learning will also be reviewed.
The journal will be published three times a year and will comprise between four and five articles of up to 8000 words in length and reviews.
Submissions can be made through the Editorial Manager (http://voca.edmgr.com/).
