Vocational Education and Training through Open and Distance Learning
The world needs workers with more and better skills. Conventional apprenticeships and old methods of professional training are not providing enough skilled workers, so governments, companies and colleges are all using open and distance learning to fill these gaps.
This unique international review of experience looks at the policies needed in both the private and the public sector for effective vocational education and training at all levels, from basic skills to continuing professional education. It goes on to examine the new roles of information and communication technologies, establishing what we know about their performance, and identifying the choices to be made in applying technologies to vocational education and training.
