[Such reports are available as a set of EUROPROF working papers].On the other hand,there are major differences in the contexts within which the training anddevelopment of VET professionals occurs in different countries.Furthermore thesedifferences, together with the different contexts within which VET professionals work, dohave significance for Europe-wide attempts to seek a fuller professionalisation of VETroles in future. Therefore as a compromise the characteristics of three national contexts forthe current training, tasks and roles for VET professionals will be considered in the nexttwo chapters, with an eye to drawing out current issues and challenges for the future rolesof VET professionals in Europe. Rather than focusing on the frequently analysed VETsystems of countries such as England, France and Germany, attention will be directed uponVET in Spain, Greece and Denmark. The first two countries are dealt with in this chapter,while the Danish system is examined in the next chapter.The rapid development and expansion of a host of training subsystems in Spain from themid-1980s was a response to the growing and unfilled needs for both basic skills andcontinuing training.Many of those employed as trainers by the National EmploymentAgency (INEM) hadlittle or no teaching or training expertise, but were recruited becausethey had relevant occupational experience.Elsewhere involvement in continuing educationand training by companies, professional associations, universities, private business schoolsand local and regional organisations mushroomed. Since 1993, great efforts have beenmade to support the institutional development of training, including attempts to clarify thefunctions and roles of those involved in vocational education and training. Significantaspects of this transformation include:ã the involvement of the social partners and national agencies in the restructuring of theregulatory framework of vocational training in Spain for the 1993-96 period.ã the planning of new Educational Vocational Training degrees, with the curricula andcontents laid down by the Ministry of Education.
