Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This publication identifies and discusses crucial issues related to the role of credentialling and certification procedures in the functioning of educational systems. Part 1 analyzes in detail selection and credentialling practices as they affect the functions and objectives of the various levels of formal education systems. Part 2 focuses on the different purposes credentials serve for individuals, various interest groups, and society as a whole and discusses employers' attitudes toward credentials as evidenced by their recruitment and promotion practices. Part 3 examines how the trend toward professionalization and the efforts of different occupational groups to maintain their bargaining power influence training and certification. (Author/JG)
