Manpower As an Asset in a Growth Economy.
Problems within the United Kingdom are social and political and if our British system is to work successfully, it can do so only on the basis of a skillful, adaptable, and educated people. Education, as our means of social progress, must equip our young people to think for themselves and to make effective personal decisions. Further education is responsible for personal development; a mere training on an industry-by-industry basis won't do it. Resources within both further education through the Regional Advisory Councils and industrial training through the Industrial Training Act need to be linked in a cooperative effort toward the development of manpower to raise the standards of management practice. If we are willing to broaden our views of education and training, our social progress will be better assured. (Author/MU)
