This comparative study of technical and vocational education policy, planning, and administration in 16 countries is based on case studies prepared by representatives of those countries in 1982 according to guidelines drawn up in conformity with the activities foreseen in the Unesco Programme for 1981-83. Chapter 1 introduces the study. Chapter 2 presents the 16 countries in terms of the structures now in place for policymaking and planning in technical and vocational education, along with those for coordinating with manpower and development planning and with training systems outside the formal education system. Where appropriate, the structural analysis also deals with the framework for research, evaluation, and feedback in the system. Chapter 3 looks more closely into the policymaking and planning processes of the countries. Chapter 4 presents examples of the administrative process and related problems in certain selected countries, with particular attention to the management principles and methods applied. In chapter 5 the problems of financing and cost efficiency are addressed. Chapter 6 looks to future trends and development problems as they arise out of the material presented, and chapter 7 deals with what is being done and what could be done through international cooperation to strengthen policy, planning, and management in technical and vocational education. Following a brief concluding chapter, four appendixes provide the text of the Revised Recommendations concerning Technical and Vocational education; the technical and vocational education systems in diagram form; the guidelines for the original country reports; and a list of the authors of the reports.
