Vocational Training in the European Economic Community, with Particular Reference to its Likely Impact on British Training Policy and Practice.
Perry, P. J. C., Comp.
This report documents the visits of a British delegation composed of representatives from three British vocational training organizations to the Commission of the European Economic Community (EEC) and to France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, and Belgium during June 6-14, 1972. The key areas investigated were: (1) the EEC's common vocational training policy, (2) development of a common working program in vocational training, (3) vocational guidance, (4) vocational training of adults as part of employment policy, (5) harmonization of qualifications, (6) management training, (7) operation of the European Social Fund with reference to the retraining of manpower, and (8) the exchange of young workers. Individual reports are provided on these topics from visits and meetings in the various EEC countries with the use of structured questionnaires and background data studied over several previous months. The unofficial status of the delegation permitted more freedom and flexibility in discussions, and some organizations in the countries visited regretted that voluntary and professional organizations in their countries did not exercise the same influence as they did in Britain. Appended to the report are key documents on which the EEC's vocational training policy is based. (MF)
