OUTLINE OF VOCATIONAL TRAINING IN KOREA.
Australian Dept. of Labour and National Service, Perth.
THE POPULATION OF THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA WAS 27,184,000 IN 1963. AGRICULTURAL AND INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION, ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY THE KOREAN WAR, HAS RECEIVED EMPHASIS THROUGH EXPORT PROMOTION, TAX REFORM, AND A STABILIZATION PROGRAM. A 6-YEAR FREE COMPULSORY EDUCATION IS SUPPLEMENTED BY "CIVIC SCHOOLS" AND "HIGHER CIVIC SCHOOLS" FOR ADULTS. PRIMARY EDUCATION IS FOLLOWED BY EITHER 3-YEAR MIDDLE SCHOOL OR TECHNICAL SCHOOL, FOLLOWED BY 3 YEARS OF ACADEMIC HIGH SCHOOL, VOCATIONAL SCHOOL, OR HIGHER TECHNICAL SCHOOL. ACADEMIC AND VOCATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY, OR TEACHERS COLLEGE. RESPONSIBILITY FOR TECHNICAL EDUCATION IS DIVIDED BETWEEN OFFICE OF LABOR AFFAIRS AND THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION AND COORDINATED WITH INDUSTRY THROUGH COMMITTEES. TRADE AND SEMISKILLED COURSES ARE GIVEN FOR 15 TRADES IN 306 VOCATIONAL HIGH SCHOOLS, AUGMENTED BY SIX TECHNICAL TRAINING CENTERS. TECHNICAL TEACHERS ARE TRAINED AT SEOUL NATIONAL UNIVERSITY. APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING, UNDER GOVERNMENT SUPERVISION, IS GIVEN IN 49 TRADES WITHIN INDUSTRY. ORGANIZED IN-INDUSTRY TRAINING IS NOT YET GOVERNMENT-PROMOTED. A NATIONAL PLAN FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING IS UNDER REVIEW. IT IS EXPECTED THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE VOCATIONAL TRAINING INSTITUTIONS WILL BE SYSTEMATIZED AND CENTRALIZED BY LEGISLATION. (JM)
