Textiles and Training in Portugal.
Andrez, Jaime Serrao; Dias, Mario Caldeira
Analyzing the role of vocational training in an economic sector that is declining in Portugal, this document consists of five chapters, a bibliography, and a list of training organizations. An introduction tells why the study is important and explains that the major obstacles to development of the Portuguese textile and clothing sector are the need for training and the difficulties of providing financing. Chapter 2 discusses the general characteristics of the textile and clothing sector. Training facilities, including those in higher education, secondary education, authorized training centers, technology centers, and other organizations, are the subject of chapter 3. Chapter 4 provides an analysis of the sector by geographic region. Chapter 5 discusses anticipated changes in the textile and clothing sector and the training priorities recommended as a result. A bibliography of 30 items, most of which are in Portuguese, and a list of organizations involved in vocational training and how they may be contacted conclude the document. (CML)
