The paper addresses training and competence development based on participation in action research in a current project about dropout among young adults in VET. The paper deals with a particular kind of action research, called ‘research circle’. The paper concerns the way the method of research circles has been used in the project in which researchers and practitioners in VET cooperate, the advantages of employing research circles, and the interrelation of practice-based knowledge and research based knowledge. The results show that the practitioners’ outcome of participating in the research circles is mainly experienced-based. They learn from reflecting on their activities in practice and from exchanging experiences with practitioners from other schools. The practitioners mostly use the research-based knowledge for conceptualizing or reflecting on their practice, however also to some extent to change their actions in practice. The study points to a need for further developing practice in research circles and more generally in action research focusing on not only transmitting research-based knowledge, but also transforming the knowledge into directions for action.

Keywords: Research circle, practice-based knowledge; research-based knowledge, transfer of knowledge.
