Vocational Training in the European Community 1994. Annual Report 1994.
Biekotter, Georg, Ed.
The 1994 Work Program of the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training reflected two priority areas of activity--qualifications and vocational training systems--and the expectations concerning the outcome of these activities at the European Union (EU) level. Projects carried out under the qualifications priority area had three aims: (1) to shed light on the coverage of and need for vocational qualifications; (2) to set up or improve information systems on qualifications within Member States or at EU level; and (3) to explore how companies draw up training programs. One section of the work carried out under the heading of vocational training systems was concerned with producing a continuous flow of up-to-date information on the structure, functioning, and development of the vocational training systems in the Member States through publication of 12 national monographs. A number of projects analyzed problems arising from the interactions between initial training systems, employment, and the labor market. Analysis of the need for vocational counseling among different categories of young people was completed. The project also sought to improve and strengthen cooperation between vocational training research institutions. Information, documentation, and publication services were also provided. (Appendixes include data tables, diagrams, and lists of Management Board members, staff, and 1994 publications.) (YLB)
