Abstract [en]

Despite a range of efforts to break the gender segregation of the job market, Swedish working life is still following traditional gender patterns. Less than a third of all upper secondary school programs are gender balanced. Still, researchers have not paid much attention to how constructions of gender impact on vocational training. In our paper we report from a newly started ethnographic project aiming to explore how gender is constructed in the vocational training of two upper secondary school programs, the Building and Construction programme and the Health and Social Care programme. Building on field observations from learning situations in the programmes our research question is: How do vocational training make building and construction workers and health and social care workers of girls and boys?
