This issue of "Training for Progress," a bulletin published four times annually to provide for an international exchange of experience in vocational training, surveys the principal lines of thought and action in vocational education as seen through "CIRF Abstracts." An introductory editorial describes the development of "CIRF Abstracts" from its emergence in 1961 as a comprehensive guide to the training of workers, supervisors and training staff, technicians, and other skilled personnel, to its present broadened geographical scope which aims at world-wide coverage and its broadened technical scope which recognizes the social and economic context of vocational training. Limitations, such as the lack of documentation of activities in developing countries, are acknowledged and two tasks of "CIRF Abstracts" in modern documentation work are identified: to provide a systematic basis for research and to help specialists broaden their views and open new horizons to them. The following chapter headings are indicative of the development described: (1) "Economic, Social, and Technical Aspects," (2) "Systems and Organizations of Education and Training," (3) "Vocational Orientation, Guidance and Selection, (4) "Supervisors and Technicians," (5) "Teaching and Instructing Staff," (6) "Training Methods and Teaching Aids." A bibliography of 539 abstracts discussed in the text is included. (JK)
