They assess the rationales for public and private financing and delivery of training; and evaluate the institutional factors that enable education and training institutions to respond effectively to economic change.show more

Review quote

"The book not only provides a wealth of examples, data and concepts of great interest to anybody involved in the VET domain, it also allows a fascinating glimpse of the World Bank's perspective on the link between education, training and economic productivity....An effective starting point for any serious consideration of the way in which we can improve the potential capability of the world's working population."--Higher Educationshow more
