This year, the Manpower Services Commission (MSC, UK) is introducing their new Youth Training Scheme. Some 41 pilot schemes have already been validated. This scheme, which is supported by both sides of industry, will give all young people under the age of 18 the opportunity to acquire a job‐related skill. To achieve this, employers will be subsidised to a total of a £1 billion. This investment will allow both the present Youth Opportunities Scheme and time‐serving apprenticeships to be replaced. By 1985, training to a certificate standard of performance will be available to employed and unemployed young people alike. This will emphasise the importance of the transition by the individual from school to work, and will move the last years of school life, as well as tertiary education, to a more vocationally oriented base. By developing a greater flexibility in those completing the training, it is anticipated that British practice will be brought into line with that found in Europe.
