This article presents how teachers and trainers in the Danish vocational education and training (VET) system are prepared for their work as professionals in an educational system undergoing rapid changes.
Danish VET teachers have had their own national educational institution DEL (Danish Institute for Educational Training of Vocational Teachers) since 1969. But the establishment of University Colleges in 2008 consequently merged DEL with the Metropolitan University College and changed the name to NCE (Danish National Centre for the Development of Vocational Education and Training). Since 2008 the training of VET teachers has been placed in the framework of the University Colleges and is now offered at 5 University Colleges across the country and a sixth is soon to come.
