Responsibility and Responsiveness. Case Studies in Further Education.
Kedney, Bob, Ed.; Parkes, David, Ed.
These eight case studies illustrate the capacity of United Kingdom Colleges of Further Education to respond effectively to training needs of local industry and commerce. Case 1 demonstrates shifts across a range of local authority colleges towards provision in the new information technologies and the service industries. Case 2 illustrates a tailor-made approach from a specialist college toward particular gaps in the capacity of a retail firm to provide its own training. Case 3 is on the provision of training in robotics for a motor manufacturing company undergoing reconstruction for survival. Case 4 examines both broad and specific provision for the catering industry. Case 5 covers provision of an off-shore sea-survival and firefighting course together with a separate training program in ship steering. Case 6 describes a wide range of computer engineering provisions requiring considerable investment in equipment and staff development from the local authority and college alike. Case 7 is provision for retraining for dislocated steelworkers. Chapter 8 describes the responses of the Building Crafts Department at Leeds College of Building to the local expression of a national need. A summary concludes the document. (YLB)
