Presentation of the project
Chile has undergone a significant educational expansion over the last decades. However, the transition between secondary education to higher education, as well as the transition between the educational system and the labour market, is still problematic.
TVET is a strategic sector for the economic development of the country, since it fosters the inclusion of the most vulnerable groups to the labour market. However, policies of this sector have been deficient to date and no consistent discussion have taken place about the changes TVET may experience, facing the increasing demand of TVET students and graduates to pursue tertiary education studies.
The project “Governing the educational and labour market trajectories of secondary TVET graduates in Chile” seeks to understand the currents orientations of TVET policies in Chile, their compatibility and contradictions with the aspirations of secondary TVET graduates, and their effects on the educational and labour market trajectories of these young adults.
