Management Training for Further Education Staff in the United Kingdom and West Germany. Comparative Papers in Further Education. Number Seven.
Finlayson, Jean, Ed.
Twenty-five short papers discuss educational management training in England and West Germany. The papers outline current provisions for training educational administrators, compare training needs with the training provided, and note training trends and problems common to the two countries. After a brief foreword, the first paper explains the rationale behind educational management training. Two papers then describe the English and West German educational systems. Two further papers review the educational management programs currently available in England and West Germany. Nine papers on England and seven on West Germany--each set preceded by a short introduction--present administrators' responses to questions on the training of regional educational administrators and principals as well as teacher educators' responses to questions on their methods of training teachers. The final paper summarizes the administrative training needs identified in the preceding articles, including training in school and labor law; in general planning, administrative, and financial tasks; in communications and human relations; and in public governmental processes.
