Workplace training strategies in selected foreign countries were examined from the standpoint of their relevance to development of a national training policy in the United States. Case studies of the following were conducted: apprenticeship training in Germany, enterprise-based training in Japan, stimulation of training by training taxes in France and Australia, local training consortia in the United Kingdom, and government-supported training in Sweden. The following menu of policy options was proposed: federal funding of training consortia composed of individuals from employers' associations, unions, schools, local government, and other training institutions; incentives and tax credits for firms with substantial training expenditures; a national training levy with lower rates for smaller firms to stimulate firm-provided training; establishment of occupational skill standards by industry and a national standard of certification of workplace skills; expansion of apprenticeship programs outside the traditional manufacturing sector; additional financial support for youths to acquire training off the job; a national clearinghouse of information on successful training initiatives and available resources; and coordination of all federal training initiatives with regional, state, and local industry efforts. Contains 41 references and 12 tables. (MN)
