Teachers and Trainers in Vocational Training. Volume 1: Germany, Spain, France and the United Kingdom.
Cordova, Pedro; And Others
This book describes the initial and continuing professional development of the various teachers and trainers involved in initial vocational training for youth in Germany, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom. The book contains separate, but similarly formatted, sections for each country. The following topics are discussed in all four country reports: initial vocational training (general features of the country's education system, initial vocational training, legal foundation of vocational training, occupational fields, examinations); trainers and teachers in initial vocational training; regulations for the training of teachers and trainers; training programs for trainers at the national level; training paths leading to the occupation of trainer; continuing training for trainers and teachers; and organizations and institutions. Among the country-specific topics examined in the individual country reports are the following: differences between the roles and professional development of teachers and trainers in Germany's dual system and in its full-time vocational schools; regulation of teachers in Spain's programs of regulated vocational training and occupational vocational training; decentralization of France's national programs; and training for the United Kingdom's National Vocational Qualifications. Also included are a total of 42 tables/figures, 55 useful addresses, 63 references, and lists of abbreviations for each of the four country reports. (MN)
