CENTRAL TRAINING COUNCIL SECOND REPORT TO THE MINISTER OF LABOUR. (TITLE SUPPLIED).
HUNTER, JOHN
IN ITS FIRST THREE YEARS, THE CENTRAL TRAINING COUNCIL HAS SET UP 18 INDUSTRIAL TRAINING BOARDS AND GUIDED THEM ON SUCH MATTERS AS TRAINER, MANAGEMENT, AND CLERICAL TRAINING. THE BOARDS ADMINISTER A GRANT AND LEVY SYSTEM TO DISTRIBUTE EQUITABLY THE COST OF TRAINING AND TO ENSURE THAT TRAINING IS ADEQUATE, RECOMMEND THE SYLLABUS AND TRAINING METHODS TO BE USED, AND SET DOWN FLEXIBLE TRAINING OUTLINES IN FIELDS WHERE PRECISE GUIDELINES ARE NOT DESIRABLE. ONE OF THE BOARDS' INNOVATIONS IS THE DECISION THAT CRAFT SKILLS BE IDENTIFIED BY THE MODULE OF TIME NEEDED TO LEARN A GIVEN SKILL, BASED ON THE CAPACITIES OF EACH TRAINEE AND THE REQUIREMENTS OF HIS EMPLOYER. MODULES CAN ALSO BE USED TO MODIFY INITIAL TRAINING LATER IN THE CRAFTSMAN'S CAREER. THE BOARDS HAVE ESTABLISHED OFF-THE-JOB-TRAINING CENTERS, GROUP TRAINING SCHEMES, AND ENCOURAGED GENERAL EDUCATION THROUGH PAYING TRAINING GRANTS ONLY TO FIRMS OFFERING DAY RELEASE TO EMPLOYEES. IN THE FUTURE, THE BOARD WILL ASSESS TRAINEES' PROGRESS AND THE STANDARDS OF TRAINING PROVIDED BY THE FIRMS, INVESTIGATE THE TRAINING PROBLEMS OF SMALL FIRMS, AND DEVELOP ADULT TRAINING AND RETRAINING PROGRAMS. (APPENDIXES ARE A ROSTER OF COUNCIL MEMBERS, LISTS OF PUBLICATIONS, RESEARCH PROJECTS, AND INDUSTRIAL TRAINING BOARDS, AND A TABULATION OF INDUSTRIAL TRAINING LEVY APPEALS DEALT WITH BY INDUSTRIAL TRIBUNALS.) THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE, FOR 3S., FROM HER MAJESTY'S STATIONERY OFFICE, LONDON. (AJ)
