The Relationship between Education and Employment in Spain. Reports Studies C.98.
Artigas, J. T.
One of the primary aims of the Spanish educational system is to provide training for productive work within the regular educational system. The educational system in Spain is designed to make a basic general education accessible to everyone. Other goals of the system include the provision of professional training as a means of initial preparation for work, continuation of training on the job, and adequate educational and professional counseling. At more advanced levels, the system is intended to answer the need for lifelong education, general training, and vocational readaptation. Labor policy, both public and private, is aimed at providing education for employment and at attempting to adapt the plans and projects of the educational system to those of private industry. Especially of late, numerous joint activities have been undertaken by the public and private sectors to train and readapt individuals to their jobs. Considering current and probable technological and economic developments, the relationship between education and employment in Spain is not likely to be easy in the coming years, and the outcome will depend, to a great extent, on the effects of the integration of Spain with the European community and other geographic and economic regions with whom Spain has close ties.
