Measures to Deal with Youth Unemployment in the Federal Republic of Germany. The Report of a Visiting Party. Studies in Vocational Education and Training in the Federal Republic of Germany. Number One Revised.
Russell, Russ, Ed.; Parkes, David, Ed.
A party of vocational educators from the United Kingdom (UK) traveled to the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) to observe the nature and scope of measures to deal with youth unemployment in that country. During their study, the observers focused their attention on the problems of the transition from school to working life, the context of the problem of youth unemployment in the FRG, curriculum and institutional interfaces, special educational needs, and structural differences between the systems of education and training in the UK and FRG. Based on their observations, the investigators developed a series of short- and long-term recommendations pertaining to the development and implementation of measures to deal with youth unemployment in the UK. Included among these were calls for the accelerated development of effective vocational preparation for young people in schools during the first year of working life, for supplying grant aid to young people following vocational preparation post-school courses, for legislation requiring employers to release employees under 21 for training and related education on an appropriate part-time basis without the loss of earnings, and for the supervision of national education and training agencies by one national ministry. (Appendixes to this report include discussions of the dual system for vocational education and apprenticeship training in the FRG as well as Arbeitslehre and Berufsberatung.) (MN)
