Hyland (post compulsory education and training, U. of Bolton) and Winch (educational philosophy, London U., both UK) are concerned here with the longtime gap between academic and vocational training in the UK in terms of quality, parity of value, and the policies involved. They discuss the history of vocational education and training (VET) in both England and Europe at large, describe how behaviorist reductionism influences the current VET curriculum, analyze the structure of its funding, and recommend policies to raise the value of VET to that of scholarly education.
