Continuing one's education is one of the challenges faced by part time employees who have to balance education along with the modern workplace. Indeed, even a lifetime of procuring scientific knowledge still falls short of the unlimited corpus of information available today, and employees are more often required to complete their basic training during their working life.

Sweden is often cited as an example of the policy of continuous training. Indeed, it is estimated that 1.98 million Swedish employees were trained in 2000 which represents nearly 50% of them!

At the heart of the Swedish education policy lies the need to allow everyone to continue the learning process throughout their life including lessons for adults and the training offered to employees. Learning throughout one's life should be seen as an opportunity for everyone to learn something new daily.

In pre-industrial society, the learning system was traditionally used to ensure the transmission of skills from generation to generation. The creation of the first Swedish professional schools or educational centers resulted in the availability of short courses.

In the early nineteenth century, technical schools were based in Stockholm and Gothenburg. They were originally oriented to vocational education, but then progressed to providing technical education at the second cycle of secondary education and ultimately became technical universities. The transition occurred from a private vocational training system to a system managed by municipalities

Until the early twentieth century, vocational education depended primarily on private initiatives. Despite its efforts, Sweden had at the beginning of the century a system of technical education and trade that was much less developed than most European nations.

The State then undertook the organization of vocational education. From 1919 to 1921, several parliamentary decisions were adopted in vocational education, including the first rules of professional schools (yrkesskolestagda), management by municipalities and private financial support for vocational schools, the creation of school-workshops and a training institute for trainers of vocational schools.Vocational education also comes under the supervision of the Central Directorate of Education (Skoloverstyrelsen).

The objectives of the vocational training policy before 1950:The main objective of the vocational training policy is to setup a vocational education system generally, aimed primarily at young people with and without an education beyond primary school.

But, in reality, training also served as a way at that time to reduce unemployment among the youth in the form of specific courses for unemployed youth. These courses are mainly in the form of lectures designed to boost the morale of unemployed young people, mainly on subjects such as civics, health and safety at work.

The link between economic and political conditions and vocational training policy: The vocational training policy was strongly influenced by history and economics.For example, if the money allocated to vocational education increased significantly from 1933, it is because in the context of the economic crisis of 1929, the Social Democrats won the parliamentary elections with their promises regarding the fight against unemployment. Courses for unemployed people experienced a major boon during this period.
