Some Main Features of Country Papers

Because the emphasis of the seminar has been placed on education and training at the technician level, several governments and individuals submitting country papers have regarded the subject of apprenticeship as marginal to the seminar on grounds that it traditionally relates mainly to craft training. However, for the less developed countries where education and training at the technician level is only now being introduced or planned, apprenticeship represents the main function for which there is substantial interplay between employers and training institutions. For any detailed examination of this relationship, legislation such as the Apprenticeship Act and Regulations submitted by Western Samoa and the Apprenticeship Scheme submitted by the Solomon Islands will be of interest.
