This paper is based on ethnographic studies in the context of vocational education: two in Sweden and one in Finland.
The article focuses on temporal and spatial dimensions of three educational contexts. The Swedish Vehicle programme, the Swedish Child and Recreation programme and the Finish social and health-care sector.
Furthermore, the article analyzes how young people exhibit their agency when negotiating their time and constructing their own space.
The authors’ analysis elucidates how time–space paths in the context of vocational education are classed and gendered.
