Finlayson, Jean, Ed.; And Others
Materials are presented from a seminar that brought together practicing German and British educationalists to compare the differing curriculum decisions and implementation processes in England and Wales with those in the Federal Republic of Germany. A foreword provides the objectives, methods, and funding bodies. Section 2 is a comparative introduction to the text that makes recommendations for further study. Detailed comments on the formal structure of technical and vocational education in the Federal Republic of Germany are offered. Specific topics are the upper secondary vocational school system, vocational training at upper secondary level outside schools, and curriculum processes. Section 4 is a glossary of terms used in the three specialists reports. The next three sections contain the reports of the technician education, business education, and vocational education groups. Each report describes the structure of the educational system in the two countries as determined from visits and the curriculum and/or curriculum development. Section 8 presents the conclusions and suggestions for further study from each of the three groups. The final section includes the seminar timetable with a list of institutions studied during the seminar and a list of membership in the seminar. (YLB)
