Abstract

Why this handbook?
The Handbook of vocational education and training: Developments in the changing world of work (‘the Handbook’) is as ambitious as it is significant. The editors have articulated the need for the Handbook as being a consequence of the ‘mushrooming of new journals, the expansion of the volume of research, and the widening of international cooperation by international Vocational Education and Training institutions’.5 The ambition of the Handbook is to provide a comprehensive overview of current thinking and scholarly writing in the field of vocational education and training (VET).

Author Biography

Martin J Mulcahy

Martin Mulcahy has been the founding member of several institutions and organisations in South Africa, including Mmabatho High School, LEAF College of Commerce and Engineering (post-school access to University), Community College Association of South Africa, National Access Consortium Western Cape and the Centre for Extended Learning (CEL). For fifteen years he served as a ministerial advisor to the Minister of Education, the Minister of Science and Technology and, finally, the Minister of Higher Education and Training. These positions provided an opportunity to develop an understanding and experience in the interconnected areas of policy, legislation, financial planning and reporting, implementation and related strategies, challenges and possibilities of concurrent responsibilities, as these relate to the institutional and to the systemic level.
