Social competences have played a crucial role in the international search for generic, over-arching skills, key qualifications and core competences since the 1970s. By the end of 1990, social cohesion and integration had gained new momentum in this discourse because of their importance for the functioning of global market economy and industries. Moreover, the concept of social capital affects and changes the role of social competences in vocational and continuing education. This volume presents a collection of papers which reflect and describe these changes and their political, economical and pedagogical backgrounds and implications. The topics include economisation of social competences, social competences as key qualifications for employability and entrepreneurship, social challenges in eroding welfare societies, gender and social competences, and the ideological and economical context of the social competences discourse.Liv Mjelde Women and Apprenticeship: Industrial, Technological Skilling and Gendering Changes in the Printing Industry in Norway Introduction In the 1980s a rich debate broke out over the questions womena#39;s participation and subordinate positions within the manual labour market. ... a specific and rather rigid gender division, boys in Mjelde Women and Apprenticeship: Industrial, Technological Skillinganbsp;...
