European Glossary on Education, Volume 2: Educational Institutions. Ready Reference.
EURYDICE European Unit, Brussels (Belgium).
This second volume of the "European Glossary on Education" includes close to 500 national terms used to designate categories or types of educational institutions for all levels of education. In addition to the 24 countries covered in the first volume (the 15 Member States of the European Union, the 3 EFTA/EEA countries and the 6 pre-accession countries), it includes Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia and Cyprus. The glossary only includes institutions offering full- or part-time education and training which is provided in a school setting or alternates with practical training in a company or training center. The terms are presented in two sections. The first section lists the terms in alphabetical order for all countries and educational levels. Only the main terms, standard abbreviations and synonyms are included in the alphabetical list. Besides the explanatory note on the term, the information given for each entry includes a country reference, the most common grammatical forms of the basic term, and the level of education concerned. The second section presents summary tables by country. The terms of the category in question (i.e. the educational establishments) are classified by level of education. Countries are presented in the order used by the European Communities. Only the general terms are included in the national tables. Abbreviations and synonyms are shown in brackets. Certain details of specific characteristics are shown below the summary tables where this is likely to contribute to understanding of the national situation. (AEF)
