The international advisory committee of the International Project on Technical and Vocational Education (UNEVOC) held its first session in Berlin in September 1993. The advisory committee's 10 members and observers from the United Nations' specialized, intergovernmental, and nongovernmental organizations discussed educational policy, links between technical and vocational education and the world of work, and financial implications. Special attention was paid to smoothing the adjustments/transitions between the educational system and the labor market and elevating technical and vocational education's status in education systems worldwide. After reviewing the first phase of the UNEVOC project, the advisory committee recommended that the following areas be deemed priorities for 1994-1995: raising the attractiveness and status of technical and vocational education within the education system; fostering links between technical and vocational education, industry, and the labor market; and developing the technical and vocational education systems. Activities were planned under the project's three program areas: international exchange of ideas/experiences and policy studies, strengthening national research and development capabilities, and facilitating access to databases/documentation. (Appended are the following: meeting agenda, participants' names/addresses, and the opening address by Colin N. Power. Both French and English versions of the report are included.) (MN)
