The six articles in this journal issue were all designed to provide an objective presentation of the framework within which the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP) is charting a course toward establishing a common training policy and creating a single market in 1993. The first article, "Information on Qualifications" (Enrique Retuerto), discusses the need for a reference framework of what each qualification means in terms of the skills required by an occupation. A paper called "The Recognition and/or Comparability of Non-University Vocational Training Qualifications in the Member States of the European Communities" (Burkart Sellin) examines the inherent possibilities and requirements of a European Community general regulation on mutual recognition. "Mastering Metals--Problems in Analysing and Classifying 'New' Technical Jobs in Metalworking" (Peter Grootings et al.) reflects the present state of work in this area. "A European Directory of Occupational Profiles" (Peter Grootings) offers some notes about the concepts, methodology, and organization of the directory. "Study of Occupational Profiles in the Electronics Sector" (Gumersindo Garcia Arribas) presents results of a pilot study in Spain. Finally, William McDerment's paper, "Some Reflections on Education and Training," comments on the need for vocational training, training to allow mobility within the Community Member States, and preparing for the future. A protocol entitled "Council Decision on the Comparability of Vocational Training Qualifications between Member States of the European Community" concludes the document. (YLB)
