Vocational Training in the Tourist Industry.
This documentary study is based on 12 national dossiers on vocational education and training in the tourist industry. Part 1 is an overview of school vocational training diplomas and curricula and the provision of training programs in the tourist industry. The description of the provision of training in this sector is followed by a review of training programs--secondary and postsecondary--for each Member State of the European Community: Belgium, Denmark, Federal Republic of Germany, Greece, Spain, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and the United Kingdom. A bibliography is provided at the end of most country summaries. Part 2 gives details of policies in the field of tourism in seven Member States and their implications for national and regional economic development. These details are supplemented by bibliographical extracts. For other countries (Belgium, Greece, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, and Portugal), the bibliographic references appear at the end of the report. Part 3 lists publications related to research on both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of tourism. The publications are divided into three categories: national studies on tourism and employment, studies and research on specific subjects, and training of managers. Content of the publication is briefly summarized. A bibliography and references section lists 163 publications and titles by country. Addresses for additional information (by country) are also listed. (YLB)
