Education and Training for the Hairdressing Industry in the Federal Republic of Germany. The Report of a Visiting Party. Studies in Vocational Education and Training in the Federal Republic of Germany. Number Nine.
Levinson, Malcolm, Ed.; And Others
A party of vocational educators from the United Kingdom (UK) traveled to the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) to examine West German education and training for the hairdressing industry. During their study, the British educators examined the training with respect to entry into further education, industry, and school; vocational preparation; course content for apprenticeship; basic craft and examinations; career development; and teaching and training qualifications. In addition to reporting on the West German educational system, the investigators made a number of comparisons between the vocational training systems in the UK and FRG. Based on these observations, recommendations were made calling for student hairdressers to spend a proportion of their training time in the salon as well as in college. It was further recommended that all of those persons responsible for training hairdressers have a minimum teacher training qualification regardless of where they teach and that a meister level or its equivalent be accepted as a statutory requirement for opening a business and training apprentices. (Appendixes to this report include a description of the dual system for vocational education and apprenticeship training in the FRG as well as a discussion of beauty therapy in the country). (MN)
