Co-Ordination of Training Systems--Some Basic Issues. Training Discussion Paper No. 25.
Bowland, Derek L.
Intended to illuminate the issues surrounding the coordination of vocational training systems in developing countries, this document raises questions about what should be coordinated, how, by whom, and for what purpose. After an introduction, the following six sections are presented: (1) "The Nature of Coordination," which distinguishes coordination from management and defines coordination as bringing parts or separate entities together in a proper relationship, thereby causing them to function together for a wider purpose; (2) "Coordination amongst Nonformal Skill Providers," which offers advice on coordination issues relevant to private institutional training and training both within and outside government; (3) "Coordination with the Formal Education System," which raises issues regarding the coordination between general education, occupational skills acquisition, vocational education, and vocational training; (4) "Coordination with the Outside World," which discusses the relationships between training and manpower, training and technological change, training and the labor market, and training and the business/industrial enterprise; (5) "Mechanisms for Coordination," which describes a "coordinating ministry" model and a "training council" model; and, finally, (6) "Summary and Conclusions."
