Major questions are being raised about the efficiency of public pre-employment vocational education and training (VET) in both developed and developing nations. Increasingly rapid economic change and growing uncertainty in the process of development raise further questions about the capacity of public VET systems, conceived in an earlier era, to respond effectively to the needs of economies and individuals. Argues that the key to the improved impact of VET on productivity lies in increasing the flexibility of the work force and of training systems, in improving the balance between skills demand and supply, and in meeting a range of specialized training needs. -from Authors
