Education Within Industry. The World Year Book of Education, 1968.
Lauwerys, Joseph A., Ed.; Scanlon, David G., Ed.
Essays in this international yearbook examine the past and present interests of governments, industry, and the economy in the education of workers, managers, engineers, and citizens. Economic, industrial, sociological, and other theoretical aspects of education within industry are discussed. Next come national and historical studies of the role of industry in vocational education and training in France, West and East Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, Nigeria, Zambia, India, Japan, Mainland China, Brazil, Venezuela, and the United States. Case studies of programs arranged by companies, work organizations, and local and regional training centers are presented from most of the above named countries and from Congo (Kinshasa), Guyana, Jamaica, and Mexico. A need is seen for a coordinated system of national policies on vocational guidance, recruitment, preoccupational training, inservice training, and examinations for selection and qualification. (ly)
