The Roles and Responsibilities of Key Players within Continuing Training (Including Management Training). Report of Subgroup D presented at the Advisory Forum Meeting (Turin, Italy, June 10-12, 1996).
European Training Foundation, Turin (Italy).
The concept of continuing vocational education and training is being broadened to reflect the needs of individuals, society, and the economy for more flexible, adaptable, learner-centered opportunities. Roles of the various players are in transition. The role and responsibilities of the government should be as follows: strategic leadership; a legislative framework; quality and standards; qualifications; licensing education and training establishments; encouraging partnerships; extra support to employers; research and development; funding; and social cohesion and community stability. The role and responsibilities of employers should include the following: training as an investment; spending on training; empowering employees; multiskilling employees; leading and managing change and innovation; linking with education and training providers; setting up internal procedures for employee development; and using new information and communications technologies to improve business performance. Training providers should be responsible for the following: training and updating trainers; developing innovative teaching and learning methods; developing flexible programs; and providing guidance, information, and counseling. Individuals should seize every opportunity for growth and development and take responsibility for their own learning. The European Training Foundation should conduct training, research, and pilot projects. (An executive summary appears first.) (YLB)
