Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1966 
12 p. 

In 1964, the two provinces of pakistan had a combined population of 101 million. The economy of the nation is heavily dependent on agriculture, but industrial expansion is rapid enough to cause shortage of skilled personnel. A 5-year primary education branches into two secondary streams. Students may enter a 5-year high school toward university, polytechnic, or teacher training. Others may enter a 3-year middle school. Upon completion of 2 years of either middle or high school, a student may choose a technical school. The central government, with the two provincial governments, shares responsibility for operating technical education. Besides university and college engineering programs, ploytechnics and monotechnics offer 3-year diploma courses in 15 technologies. Technical-industrial institutes offer 1- and 2-year trade courses. There are also 110 vocational schools. Inservice technical teacher training is given at selected polytechnics, and preservice training programs and technical teacher training colleges have been established in both provinces. Apprenticeships are available in a wide variety of trades, in which engineering and building are predominant, and accelerated training is available in 14 trades. In-industry training, consisting chiefly of practical work for apprentices and technicians, has developed only in response to local needs with no formal promotion by the government. Plans have been made for 19 new polytechnics and 424 new vocational schools. (jm)
