Description - Education and Work in Great Britain, Germany and Italy by Annette Jobert
In the current economic crisis which has given rise to high and persisting levels of unemployment, the relations between education and training, on the one hand, and work and employment, on the other, have been the object of lively debates and have stimulated a large body of research. Education and Work in Great Britain, Germany and Italy analyses the literature in this field and establishes an institutional and intellectual cartography for these three countries. This volume examines the multiple connections between education, broadly defined, and work, through an analysis of the literature on the transition from school to work, on vocational training and on the labour market. It summarises the major debates in each country and on the basis of this contributes to an understanding of different intellectual traditions. It shows that concepts such as skill, unemployment rates, young people and the transition from school to work are socially constructed and are thought about in ways which are nationally specific.
Education and Work in Great Britain, Germany and Italy is essential reading for students of European training systems and for those conducting comparative European research.
