How should the programmes be funded? How should they be linked to academic and university programmes? How can employers and unions be engaged? This report synthesises the findings of the series of  country reports done on skills beyond school.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter looks at ways of strengthening the profile of what we awkwardly call "post-secondary vocational education and training". It proposes first, that the sector should be described as "professional education and training"; second, that the scale of the sector needs to be adequate in each country and this depends on an effective institutional and funding structure; and third, that better data are needed to measure and evaluate the sector and compare it internationally.
