Summary

Japan had an estimated population of 97,000,000 in 1964. Because less than 40 percent of the land is arable and mineral wealth is small, importing foodstuffs and raw materials is necessary. Large-scale capitalized firms and small handicraft workshops produce consumer goods. The nation's economy is based upon foreign trade. The first 9 years of education are compulsory, after which students may enter upper secondary schools to qualify for institutions of higher learning, vocational training centers administered by the ministry of labor, or technical colleges administered by the ministry of education. Ministries and industry are coordinated under provisions of the vocational training act of 1958. General centers provide basic skills, comprehensive centers provide specialized skills and teacher training, and the institute of vocational training undertakes instructor training and the operation of a research unit. Accelerated vocational training is available for persons whose jobs have become redundant. Certification of instructors is based upon an examination or a trade skill test plus teacher training. In-industry training is primarily an employer responsibility, but authorized vocational training standards are established for 188 trades with government assistance. National planning for vocational training is underway to overcome a projected severe shortage of workers. (jm)
