COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN BRITAIN.
EISENHAUER, LOUIS
WHILE BRITAIN HAS NO PARALLEL TO THE AMERICAN MULTIPURPOSE COMMUNITY COLLEGE, THE PURPOSE OF SUCH AN INSTITUTION IS SERVED BY A VARIETY OF FORMS OF "COLLEGES OF FURTHER EDUCATION," EACH WITH ITS OWN INDIVIDUAL CHARACTER AND PURPOSE. THEY MAY BE LOCAL, AREA, REGIONAL, OR NATIONAL. THEY INCLUDE COLLEGES OF ART, AGRICULTURE, AND COMMERCE, AS WELL AS TECHNICAL COLLEGES. ENTRY IS OPEN TO ALL, AND STUDENTS MAY PROGRESS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR TIME, ABILITY, AND EFFORT. THE CURRICULAR RANGE IS FROM SECONDARY REMEDIAL STUDIES TO UNIVERSITY LEVEL PROGRAMS. SOME COLLEGES OFFER WORK LEADING TO A UNIVERSITY DEGREE, AND A WIDE VARIETY OF DIPLOMAS AND CERTIFICATES IS AVAILABLE. MOST OF THESE AWARDS REQUIRE BOTH LIBERAL AND TECHNICAL STUDIES. THE COLLEGES UTILIZE A LEGALLY SUPPORTED LIAISON AMONG BRITISH INDUSTRY, BUSINESS, GOVERNMENT, PROFESSIONS, AND THE TECHNICAL COLLEGES. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 38, NUMBER 5, FEBRUARY 1968. (WO)
