Innovation in Education, n60 Oct 1991
This Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) newssheet is devoted to a cluster of activities connected by a common theme: the relationship between education and the economy. Four areas of activity are discussed: (1) further education and training of the labor force; (2) the changing role of vocational and technical education and training; (3) higher education and employment; and (4) partners in education--the new partnership between business and schools. The first activity investigates ways in which adult workers in the OECD member countries update their skills and competencies. The second activity is concerned with preparing young people for jobs in upper and postsecondary vocational and technical education and with training within the context of social and economic change. The third activity of the Education Committee consists of three projects: follow-up of higher education graduates into working life, the humanities and social sciences, and developments in continuing professional education. The fourth study, on partnerships, concludes that positive educational advantages can be realized. (NLA)
