Equal Opportunities and Vocational Training. A Survey on Vocational Training Initiatives for Women in the European Community.
This report synthesizes findings of a survey of vocational training measures for women in the nine countries of the Western European community. In the first section, some basic figures are presented on numbers of innovative measures, proportion of women gainfully employed, distribution of employed women among economic sectors, and persons undergoing vocational training according to sex. Section B is a comparative analysis of the reports on innovative vocational training measures in West Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. It specifically features measures covered in the survey (initiative, implementation and control, financing, socioeconomic context), objectives of the measures (types of program, occupations for which training is given and final qualifications, innovation, relationship to the labor market), context of the measures (differences between normal training and measures surveyed; course of training, content, and methods; supporting measures; training personnel), and evaluation (number of trainees, assessment of measures by participants and institutions/persons involved). The reports on innovative measures in Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands are surveyed in section C. The final section makes conclusions regarding commonalities in the initiatives, participants' problems in innovative vocational education, and the role of equal rights commissions in initiatives.
