The Aims and Organization of Further Education.
Bratchell, D.F.
This work reviews the historical background, aims, and administration of further education in Great Britain; types of courses and course arrangements; and the teacher situation in further education. The beginnings of state aid, the development of technical, secondary, and university education, the 1956 and 1961 White Papers on technical education, and results of the 1944 Education Act are among the highlights of the first chapter. In the next chapter, the scope and distinct aims of further education are discussed in relation to industrial needs and to the aims of teachers' colleges and universities. Administrative organization is charted for the Department of Education and Science, further education colleges, and the local education authorities (under the Ministry of Education). Next, basic provisions for liberal technical education are covered, together with vocational and professional qualifications, degrees, national certificates and diplomas, examination procedures, courses in commerce and in art, and enrollment data for full-time, part-time, and sandwich (alternating work and study) courses. Finally, the training, qualifications, and supply of teacher personnel is evaluated, mainly in terms of three major national reports. A glossary, tables, references, and an index are included. (ly)
