Welcome to NORDYRK

NordYrk is a Nordic research network on vocational education and training. The participating countries are Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland.
The network is important to strengthen the research base of the field and to promote cooperation and knowledge development on vocational issues in the Nordic countries.

A yearly conference is organized, visited by researchers, teacher educators for vocational teacher training students, and actors in the field.
