New Challenges in the Education and Training of the European Workforce. Final Report. A Seminar for EC and EFTA Countries on Policies for Education and Training of the Labour Force in a Changing European Economy (Stockholm, Sweden, June 13-14, 1990).
National Swedish Board of Education, Stockholm.
This report provides presentations from a seminar attended by delegates from all the European Community and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries to discuss policy planning for education and training. "The European Skill Gap--Introductory Comments" (Abrahamsson, Henriksson) provides an overview of the seminar and topics covered: the European skill gap, national and supernational policies, access- or policy-oriented models, new ways of learning in the workplace, and comparative issues. "Opening Speech" (Persson) reflects on five main policy issues, the: (1) importance of labor market policy for economic policy; (2) choice between an active or passive labor market policy; (3) importance of the education system, personnel training, and employment training in the economic development of all industrialized countries; (4) policies for access and equity; and (5) democratization of working life. "Continuing Education and Training in the 1990's" (Ramoff) identifies new vistas that are opening up in training policy in Europe in a changing economic climate. An "Issue Paper" summarizes four sessions: "New Horizons of Learning in a Changing European Economy"; "Policies for Achieving Human Resources Development and Lifelong Learning in a Changing Labour Market"; "Right and Access to Training and Education in Post-Industrial Societies"; and "The Adult as Learner: Towards New Trends in Workplace Learning.""Seminar Report" (Harrison) highlights three themes: access to adult continuing education, competence level and competitiveness of the European work force, and new forms of partnerships. The program and list of participants are appended. (YLB)
