Extractions: RE VISED RECOMMENDATION CONCERNING TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION Introduction In view of the role of technical vocational education in sustaining the complex structure of modern civilization and continued economic progress and the needs of Member States, particularly the developing countries, for guidance in the planning and improvement of their educational systems, the General Conference decided that technical and vocational education should be made the subject of an international instrument of the form of a Recommendation to Member States. A first Recommendation on Technical and Vocational Education was adopted by the General Conference at its twelfth session in 1962. It set forth general principles to be observed regarding the objectives, planning organization of technical and vocational education, as well as international co-operation in this field. Considering the rapid technological and educational changes and the increasing importance of technical and vocational education for social and economic development, the General Conference decided to revise this Recommendation. The Revised Recommendation, adopted in 1974, emphasises the democratization of education in the context of lifelong education in improving education as a whole for social, economic and cultural development. It sets forth general principles, goals and guidelines to be applied by country according to its needs and resources.

Employers are reimbursed a pre-determined amount (usually 50% of wages paid) to help offset the cost and the lower productivity associated with training new workers.
Teachers, Secondary Some instructors teach vocational education courses such as welding and auto mechanics. andgive examinations, and arrange class projects and other activities. http://www.state.sd.us/dol/sdooh/teachsec.htm
Extractions: Wage Secondary school teachers, also called high school teachers , usually specialize in a specific subject such as English, a foreign language, mathematics, social studies, science, history or government. Instructors may teach several classes that are related to their fields of specialty. For example, a history teacher may teach American and world history. English teachers are often responsible for not just English classes but foreign language or journalism classes as well. Some instructors teach vocational education courses such as welding and auto mechanics. For each class, teachers develop lesson plans, prepare and give examinations, and arrange class projects and other activities. In addition to classroom duties, teachers participate in faculty and professional meetings, educational conferences and other training workshops. Some teachers also have additional duties such as directing plays, coaching athletic teams or leading other extra-curricular activities like Future Homemakers of America or debate. Workplace Examples Local Government Education Federal Government Working Conditions Most secondary teachers work a 10-month school year and enjoy summers off, although a few teach summer classes as well. Work schedules during the school year vary, and may exceed 40 hours a week at times of the year for teachers who teach certain subjects or who are involved in extra-curricular activities. For example, English teachers may spend many hours outside the classroom reading and grading stories or themes which students have written. As another example, a teacher who also advises the school yearbook may work with students on weekends or into the summer months to finish the project. Teaching involves long periods of standing and talking, and can be both physically and mentally tiring. Teachers also spend several days each year attending in-service training and other workshops to keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date and to plan cooperative projects with other teachers.
Extractions: In this integrated module, students use a spreadsheet to collect environmental data, then select from a variety of choice activities to represent their understanding of air quality issues. Because of its integrative nature this module meets a broad range of outcomes. For example, students use the Internet and other resources to gather information on issues that relate to air quality. Activities are organised according to Gardiner's Multiple Intelligence Inventory. All resources and student guides for this module are available online at http://schools.brunnet.net/ffl/air1.htm.

Extractions: NCRVE Home Site Search Product Search School-to-work for the college bound (MDS-799). Berkeley: National Center for Research in Vocational Education, University of California. We have argued that the school-to-work model can be used to teach rigorous academic skills and to prepare students for college. Indeed, some of the most highly regarded school-to-work programs are explicitly designed for college-bound students. The internships in these programs are seen as assets for college applicants. Many of these school-to-work programs have competitive admissions processes which consider attendance; test scores (PSATs or some sort of behavioral or critical thinking tests); writing samples; personal statements; GPAs; minimal levels of math and science such as algebra and chemistry; and teacher and guidance counselor recommendations. Internships usually involve work on a research project including formal presentations of the results and conclusions. This combination of activities not only gives students the opportunity to work (alone and/or in teams) on original problems but to develop and integrate many of the academic and technical skills they have learned. In many high schools, the more successful students can complete most of their regular high school graduation requirements in their junior year, and program administrators believe that well-designed internships can keep successful students interested in school during their last years.

Extractions: T O D ISTINGUISH OR TO B LUR Despite the fact that hardly anyone since Socrates has seriously held that it is possible to settle interesting philosophical problems by establishing strict definitions, the drawing of significant conceptual distinctions is arguably still the main stock-in-trade of professional philosophers. The trouble is, however, that since conceptual distinctions are apt to atrophy in the form of dualisms on the one hand, or are liable to generate problem cases on the other, it is also not uncommon to encounter attitudes of some distrust and hostility among philosophers towards distinction making. While in contemporary mainstream philosophy, the day-to-day business of fine distinction-making continues unabated among philosophers, it is also true that numerous traditional distinctions, enshrining what many have come to regard as unacceptable dualisms, have come under heavy fire in recent times. One particularly good example of this philosophical iconoclasm is the assault mounted by philosophers broadly located in the pragmatist tradition on the empiricist distinction between the analytic and the synthetic a distinction nowadays commonly denounced as useless for any significant practical philosophical purpose.

Extractions: Convergence of general and vocational education POLICY 98.04 CONVERGENCE OF GENERAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION The convergence of General and Vocational Education clearly poses a number of curriculum considerations for schools and for teachers involved in the delivery of the curriculum. As such it is an issue of considerable interest to QIEU and its members, who support the principle of the convergence of general and vocational education, where it is relevant and leads to meaningful outcomes for students within a total curriculum experience. The industrial issues associated with convergence cannot be viewed in isolation from the broad curriculum issues, nor can they be divorced from the structure and processes associated with the management of the curriculum, be that at the level of evaluation and certification or at the level of resource provision. Finn and Carmichael identified multiple pathways within vocational education for post compulsory schooling. Clearly the implication of these reports was that there should be a number of options available to students which reflect more flexible work and study. This notion creates tensions with the BSSSS' preferred model of embedding to the exclusion of existing linking arrangements with TAFE and vocational elements already identified in Board Registered Subjects and work experience.

Extractions: M Since the turn of the century, vocational and academic educational programs in American high schools have grown increasingly separate. Vocational and academic teachers undergo distinct certification processes, and students involved in one strand of education often do not mix with students in the other. In recent years, this separation has come under criticism for many reasons. These reasons include the growing recognition that the workplace of the future will require new and different skills of all workersincluding not only job-specific skills but also transferable, generic skills that will help them to acquire further education and training throughout their careers. Thus, strict distinctions between academic and vocational knowledge and skills are becoming blurred. In 1990, the federal government mandated the "integration" of vocational and academic education through amendments to the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act of 1984. The amendments made funds available "to provide vocational education in programs that integrate academic and vocational education . . . so that students achieve both academic and occupational competencies." As a result, states and localities throughout the nation are undertaking efforts to integrate vocational and academic education. Unfortunately, little systematic information has been available to help guide integration efforts. To help fill the gap, a recent study conducted by RAND for the National Center for Research in Vocational Education analyzed the experience of eight schools that had begun their integration efforts several years before the Perkins amendments. The study derived important "lessons learned" that can help guide educators and educational policymakers seeking to integrate vocational and academic education.
