This report of a UNESCO Seminar held in 1992 focuses on identification of various challenges posed by the changing vocational world to the world of education, redefining the role of education in facing these challenges and recommending appropriate changes at various levels of the educational continuum to link technical and vocational education more closely with the world of work. The report underscores that vocational education should have strong policy support and should be fully backed by administrative and political will. The report also makes recommendations about possible shifts in funding technical and vocational education from exclusive state financing to increasing contributions from industry and beneficiaries.
