Forskere på Fafo: Torgeir Nyen, Anna Hagen Tønder Vocational education and training in Norway covers a wide range of trades and vocations. Within parts of the labour market, like traditional crafts and industry, apprenticeship training is well established as a qualification route. Within the service sector, however, vocational training lacks a firm foundation. This report takes a closer look at the prerequisites for the establishments of new vocational trades. A quantitative survey among enterprises was conducted, investigating attitudes towards vocationally trained employees within office and administration, sales, logistics, ICT service and health work. In addition, the report draws upon a limited number of qualitative interviews within selected enterprises.
