9780521556675: Productivity, Education and Training: Facts and Policies in International Perspective (National Institute of Economic and Social Research Occasional Papers)

Higher standards of schooling and of vocational training are now widely recognized as essential in Britain if benefits are to be gained from advanced technology, and if unemployment rates are to be reduced. The continuing development of automated production methods, combined with increasing competition from low-wage developing economies, is likely to reduce even further the scope for the employment of low skilled and inexperienced personnel in advanced economies. This book provides a realistic analysis of what needs to be done, based on visits over the past ten years by expert teams to matched samples of manufacturing plants in Britain and the European Continent, as well as to schools and vocational colleges. It explains why government policies need to move even further, and in which directions those policies should move.

Book Description:

This book offers the first comprehensive account of ten years of research into the problem of the training, employment and productivity of low-skilled personnel in advanced economies. It explains why government policies need to move even further than they have done so far, and in which directions these policies must next move.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The continuing development of automated production methods, combined with increasing competition from low-wage developing economies, is likely to reduce yet further the scope for the employment of low-skilled and inexperienced personnel in advanced economies. Higher standards of schooling and of vocational training are now widely recognised as essential. Based on visits by expert teams over the last ten years to matched samples of manufacturing plants, as well as to schools and vocational colleges in Britain and the European Continent, this book provides a realistic analysis of what needs to be done. The emphasis is on the need to expand, not the proportion of the workforce with university qualifications, but those with craft and vocational qualifications. The findings of this research have been influential in the development of government policies, and the author explains why these policies need to move even further, and in which directions they must next move.
