Coherence between Compulsory Education, Initial and Continuing Training and Adult Education in Norway. National Report. CEDEFOP Panorama. First Edition.
This report discusses various aspects of continuity--internal, external, and complex--in education and training. Chapter 1 defines conditions for the three different types of continuity and describes the organization of the report, which distinguishes four different sectors of education and training: public education, private education, labor market training, and voluntary. Chapter 2 describes the governance structure of initial and adult education and training in Norway. Chapter 3 describes the public education sector, comprising compulsory education, upper secondary education, and higher education and discusses various aspects of continuity in regard to each level. Chapter 4 describes the private education sector, which in Norway is relatively small. Chapter 5 deals with the voluntary sector of adult education associations. Chapter 6 deals with labor market measures and describes two major labor market initiatives: the In-house Training Scheme and the Substitution Scheme. Chapter 7 deals with organizational innovations to coordinate local delivery of education and training. Three innovations are described: the regional competence committees in the county of Nordland, local and regional resource centers, and a new role for local employment offices. Appendixes include a description of provision for preschool children in Norway, child-care institutions, and educational programs for 6-year-olds; and a translation of a chapter in the main agreement between The Confederation of Norwegian Business and Industry and The Norwegian Conference of Trade Unions 1994-97 on development of competence. Contains 30 references. (YLB)
