Vocational Education and Training in Italy. Second Edition, 1999.
This monograph describes the Italian initial and continuing vocational education and training (VET) system and its qualitative and quantitative development. Chapter 1 outlines the general context of the VET system--both institutions and social and economic aspects. It provides facts and figures on such topics as demographic trends in Italy, the rates of employment and unemployment (with a breakdown of the major geographical areas), and the migration process. Chapter 2 describes the institutional framework of the VET system, a highly structured system that is the product of Italy's historical development and a division of responsibilities between the state and regions. Chapter 3 describes the structure and quantitative aspects of the system as embodied in its laws and regulations. It sets out facts and figures on the VET system under regions and the vocational education system under the Ministries of Education and of Universities and Scientific and Technological Research. Chapter 4 describes expenditures on training, including spending on public and private VET from various sources. Chapter 5 analyzes these qualitative aspects of relevance to the VET system: certification procedures, guidance, and training of trainers. Chapter 6 looks at innovations occurring in the Italian system. Appendixes include lists of acronyms and abbreviations and a glossary. (Contains 59 references). (YLB)
