Career Education in the United States and Great Britain: A Comparative Analysis.
Finch, Curtis R.; Cooksey, Geoffery W.
The study has as its purpose the examination and comparison of career education movements in the United States and Great Britain and is perhaps best described as a pilot effort. Specific questions addressed included: (1) How do career education efforts in the two nations compare in terms of national commitment, philosophy, and students served? (2) What similarities and differences exist between the two nations with regard to career education program structure and focus? (3) What career education procedures, practices, and materials appear to be utilized by educators in both Great Britain and the United States? In order to develop the proper perspective for comparison, a rather brief summary of the career education movement in the United States is presented. This is followed by a similar summary of career, or to use the British terminology, careers education in Great Britain. Finally, a comparison of the career education movements and programs in the two countries is made. Career and careers education may be seen as integral parts of the school curriculum. In each case, emphasis has been placed on the involvement of youngsters in learning about and preparing to engage in work. (Author)
