Report of the Australian Tripartite Mission on the Training of Skilled Workers in Europe; 1968-69.
Australian Tripartite Mission.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of an Australian Tripartite Mission appointed by the Minister of State for Labor and National Service to examine the methods of training skilled workers in a number of European nations from which Australia is obtaining migrant labor. The Mission summarized its findings of how the various European nations handled their skilled labor--systems of training, training authorities, role of trade unions, school standards, cost, length, entry standards, supervision of training, syllabuses and examinations, adult training, attainment of skilled worker status, and the new approaches being developed in response to technological change. The establishment of criteria for selection of migrant tradesmen will not result in a large flow of skilled craftsmen into Australia. Many European countries are short of skilled labor. There is general agreement in European countries that an initial period of off-the-job training combined with a block-release system for later years is the most suitable method for training and that three years is a satisfactory training period.
