The document reports the findings and suggestions produced by a study of the needs for on-the-job training of foundry workers and for management development in foundries in Brazil. The researchers propose the creation of working foundries to serve as vocational training centers and laboratories, where experienced workers could upgrade their skills, young students working with them could learn job skills in their first foundry experience, and research could be carried out. Three stages for the development of the proposed centers are outlined, extending to 1981 and beyond. Attention is paid to the physical lay-out of such centers (the arrangement of foundry, laboratories, and classrooms), and to the educational organization of the centers, which would serve the many small foundry industries in Brazil with the ultimate goal of increasing the nation's output of foundry products at an increasing rate, in order to compete successfully with other developed nations on the world market.
