Terminology of Technical and Vocational Education. Revised Edition = Terminologie de l'Enseignement Technique et Professionnel. Edition Revisee = Terminologia de la Ensenanza Tecnica y Profesional. Edicion Revisada.
International Bureau of Education, Paris (France).
This five-language glossary of vocational-technical terms is intended to serve a dual purpose: (1) to establish a generally acceptable international terminology in five of the working languages of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco)--Arabic, English, French, Russian, and Spanish--in order to facilitate international communication in the field of technical education; and (2) to promote and facilitate a more precise understanding of the Unesco Revised Recommendation concerning Technical and Vocational Education adopted by the General Conference at its 18th session, November 1974, in Paris. The terminology in this guide is not based on the experience of or system prevailing in any one country. An international English, which does not correspond to prevailing usage in any one English-speaking country, served as the base language to which the terminologies and definitions in the other four languages were adapted. The 124 terms defined in this guide are grouped from the more general to the more particular under the following major headings: (1) general terms relating to education; (2) terms relating to systems and structures of education; (3) terms relating to the content of technical and vocational education; (4) terms relating to the teaching and learning process; (5) terms relating to guidance; (6) terms relating to teaching staff, their qualifications and training; (7) terms relating to training; and (8) terms relating to employment. An alphabetical index to the guide contains appropriate paragraph references to the Revised Recommendation. (KC)
