Craft Apprenticeship in Europe. Comparative Papers in Further Education. Number Five.
This comparative study on craft apprenticeship in Europe is divided into four parts. An introductory section analyzes developments and trends in apprenticeship training in Europe. The second section is a view of vocational training derived from interviews with European commission officials. Some common issues in apprenticeship training in Denmark, Eire, France, Netherlands, United Kingdom, and West Germany are then examined. They include definitions of apprenticeship; legislation; participating bodies; component parts of the apprenticeship program; education, training, and work experience; starting age and duration of apprenticeship; formal qualifications and examinations; guidance and supervisory services; reform and development; take-up rates; and examples of ranges of trades involved. Appendixes provide background material on the European community, including the structure of the European economic community, vocational education and training, and general educational policy. They also provide a summary of general principles for vocational training agreed upon by the Council of Ministers in 1963. (YLB)
