Recurrent Education. Policy and Development in OECD Countries: Recurrent Education in Norway.
This report, part of a series on the state of recurrent education in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) member countries, focuses on recurrent education in Norway. The report describes and reviews the considerable effort undertaken in Norway to design a more satisfactory relationship between education and society and to create the legal institutions to allow this relationship to develop. The Norwegian concept of recurrent education is defined as education which completes, brings up-to-date, renews, and deepens basic and/or special education, and which is normally undertaken after some time has been spent in an occupation. Section 1 contains a short introduction and then describes the basic features of the Norwegian educational system. Section 2 reviews the organization, content, and finance of recurrent education in Norway today. Section 3 describes recurrent education in the future and focuses on program organization, content, philosophy, financial benefits, and relationship to present educational programs. Section 4 details the need for continued research, while section 5 outlines guidelines for governmental financial support of voluntary study organizations. (DE)
