Employment Training. Bulletin Number 3.
Further Education Unit, London (England).
This bulletin considers recent developments in employment training, especially with regard to Training and Enterprise Councils (TECs) in Great Britain. These developments include the freedom of each TEC to choose the training schemes it wants to offer, TEC self-direction, changes in funding for job training, and the addition of other unemployed groups to those now eligible for training. It also discusses quality issues, such as the requirement that all organizations involved in training must achieve approved status from the Training Agency through its system of Reports on Training Arrangements (ROTA). Criteria for ROTA are listed. Four case studies, collected in March-April 1990, show how colleges of further education are responding to employment training. The bulletin then addresses how training has been used to effect change in colleges, particularly with regard to development of the curriculum, institution, and staff. These changes are discussed: flexible learning, equal opportunities, guidance, staffing, staff development, standards, stages, and implementation. Some insights into future developments are drawn.
