UK's VET Policy and the "Third Way": Following a High Skills Trajectory or Running Up a Dead End Street?
Keep, Ewart
Journal of Education and Work, v12 n3 p323-46 Oct 1999
In Britain, a "third way" to labor-force development (between U.S. deregulation and the German dual system) includes flexible labor markets and supply-side interventions. However, National Vocational Qualifications and other elements of the British system rely on outmoded concepts of work organization and skills. The third way is likely to fail due to a strategy based on price, not quality. (SK)
