The Training Revolution: From Shop-Floor to Board-Room.
Wellens, John
Attempting to adapt occupational training to an outmoded apprenticeship system is an unsatisfactory solution to the needs of British society. Apprenticeship derives from a system preceding by hundreds of years the Industrial Revolution, which makes no allowances either for the new types of jobs which have grown up or for the need for education of the individual worker. The establishment of the Common Market in Europe led to the setting up of standards for occupational training in member countries, to facilitate the migration of workers from their own home areas to places in need of labor supply. Great Britain has as great a need for total reform. An initial step toward a new national policy would be the establishment of a National Occupational Training Authority. This group should hold the responsibility for organizing vocational training to meet the needs of both an overall economic plan and the individual workers. (mf)
