Technical and Vocational Education. Occupational Basic Training, #1: Preliminary Definition of a Polyvalent and Cultural Occupational Basic Training (Strasbourg, France, 1977).
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France). Committee for General and Technical Education.
The three papers compiled here on vocational and technical education in Europe were prepared and discussed by experts in the course of three meetings held in 1977. Focus is on polyvalent occupational training, which prepares students for maximum adaptability to technical and social changes and for occupational mobility. The first paper describes ways in which polyvalent training can be achieved and defines basic occupational training in terms of considerations external to and within the training system. The second paper deals with systematic analysis applied to the conception of a basic occupational training course and includes skills and educational objectives; structural analysis of three levels of a system (learning, production, and social); and relationships among social behaviors, production activities, and educational contents. The next paper covers the role of work systems analysis in the determination of occupational skills to be developed in education and training. The last paper discusses the concept of occupational families in relation to occupational training, including aims, implications, methods, and contents. (EM)
