Central Training Council; Third Report to the Secretary of State.
Ministry of Labour, London (England).
The third report of the Central Training Council, covering the first four years of its progress recounts expanded activities of the older Training Boards, including the publication of training recommendations, and the creation of eight new Boards; it also elaborates on areas which present continuing problems. The 26 Boards cover over 15 million employees including 2 1/4 million in nonmanufacturing sectors of the economy. One of the main aims of the Council has been to offer guidance to Boards on training for occupations common to all industries through the committees on management training and development, commercial and clerical training, training of training staff, research, Scotland and Wales, and industrial training service. There is a continuing need for study of important policy issues -- apprenticeship and adult training for skill, levy and grant schemes, occupations found in several industries, training in safety, training of computer staff, training needs and problems of smaller firms, training of shop stewards, and associated further education. The Estimates Committee of the House of Commons made a study of industrial training during the year and made several recommendations to the Ministry of Labour. (Appendixes include publications, research projects, and recommendations of the Estimates Committee.) (eb)
