The Netherlands, 16-19 Education. Comparative Papers in Further Education. Number One.
Further Education Staff Coll., Blagdon (England).
This collection of eight papers reflects Dutch experiences on topics of common interest and concern in the education of less able 16 to 19 year olds throughout the European economic community. "An Outline of the Dutch System of Education" (Philippa Andrews and Colin Turner) provides a basic background to Dutch education, concentrating particularly on the further and technical systems. "Introduction and Background to Participation Education" (C. Turner) discusses how to maximize participation by early school leavers in vocational programs. "The Institutional Network of Participation Education" (Russ Russell) describes the interrelationships between the various sectors. The next two papers by C. Turner and R. Russell, respectively, describe two participatory educational institutions. "The Operation of Partial Compulsory Education in the Netherlands" (Arie Mens) reports some of the experiences resulting from raising the educational requirements. "Industrial Training and Apprenticeship in the Netherlands" (C. Turner) supplements the first paper to provide a briefing to Dutch educators. "Vocational Preparation in Holland," an edited version of an article printed in EDUCA, October 1978, raises the problem of trying to achieve a qualified apprenticeship in a shorter period of time. Appendixes include basic statistics on the Netherlands, addresses of organizations, and a bibliography. (YLB)
