  • An ideology what a modern society seeks is lifelong employment through lifelong learning. The single word which draws the attainment is lifelong vocational competency development. This study is designed for exploring its possibility and limit of a redesign of it, and tries to propose efficiently a redesign idea of a vocational educational path. To this end, it was analyzed by a subject for a national human resource foundation plan and a lifelong bocational competency development foundation plan. In addition to that, it was covered a structure and content analysis of main laws and regulations which are a base of policy making. An educational path could be divided into an area of formal education system, an area of workplace for labors, and an area of lifelong vocational competency development. And the insights were drawn by pulling apart an operational situation of main organizations and a recurrent process of the educational path. The redesign plan of a vocational education path we did analyze to activate lifelong vocational competency development system is deduced as following. Firstly, it should be re-organized with a direction towards an effective manpower training to be linked with skills and demands required by an industry. Secondly, it should be generalized for a model of recurrence between work and learning and its alternation for lifelong vocational competency development. Thirdly, it should create a cluster in the region for lifelong vocational competency development so that it is to form an efficient network to have a division of labor and its liaison with cooperative relationship.

  • This study aims to identify the cooperative relations among researchers and their network structures based on the academic papers published in the field of lifelong vocational education and training from 2000 to 2015. Authors in three representative journals, 'Journal of Lifelong Education', 'Journal of Vocational Education Research', and 'Korea Research Institute for Vocational Education & Training,' during the periods, were selected and co-authorship network analysis was applied using NetMiner 4.0 in order to find the social relation among researchers and their academic influences. The results showed that the research productivity in the field of lifelong vocational education and training forms a shape of the power function where there exist components called, 'detailed research groups.' This network structure represents characteristics of a small world. In addition, the centrality analysis suggest authors with high centrality serve as co-authors who play as a central role on the network and exchange information with other researchers, while those with high betweenness centrality serve as a channel where they transfer knowledge and information among research groups. Increasing member of co-authorship has positively contributed to the opportunity and development of cooperative research among researchers in the field of lifelong vocational education and training. However it is recommended co-authorship be formed more heterogeneously instead of a few researches centrally dominate co-authorship. Various researchers should continually conduct research for good research performances.
