Award of EC Television Prize for Broadcasts on Vocational Training.
European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training, Berlin (West Germany).
The European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) is endeavoring to encourage television to provide more and better information on vocational and continuing education in the European Community (EC). Therefore, it held its first competition to award prizes for broadcasts presenting information on vocational training, promoting vocational training, or conveying vocational expertise. About 200 public and private television companies in the EC were invited to submit entries. First prize was awarded in November 1989 to the Rhineland-Palatinate regional studio of Sudwestfunk for its entry, "Europe: A Box of Bricks," which described a project in which teenagers from Germany, France, and England met in an ancient castle in France for a week to pool ideas and plan and set up a computer-controlled miniature factory. A special prize went to the Dutch television company "RVU educatieve omroep" for its presentation of a day in the life of a bus driver. A further special prize was awarded to the British Broadcasting Corporation's "1992 Is Too Late," which tells how educational programs in Britain and France are responding to the needs that will arise from the EC unification in 1992.
